"Madison patrols quickly identified witnesses and met with them on scene and later at headquarters to gather evidence. Madison Police Traffic Safety Unit, Madison Police Division of Investigations, Morris Township Police Department, Morris County Sheriff’s Department, and Morris County Prosecutor’s Office all assisted with the investigation," he added. 

The accident took place in front of The Museum of Early Trades and Crafts and that section of road was closed down for a number of hours.
