The cars collided, causing the Odyssey to spin and come to rest on the sidewalk. The Nissan also went into a spin and struck a 2015 Subaru Imprezza operated by Brian Royle, 36, of Kendall Park, that was also traveling north on Cedar Grove Lane, police said.

A 58-year-old unidentified woman riding as a passenger in the Nissan was trapped inside the vehicle and had to be removed by firefighters from Somerset Fire and Rescue and Middlebush Fire, according to police.

EMS workers transported the woman to an area hospital for treatment for multiple fractures and other non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Both Georgiana and Chow suffered minor lacerations and complaints of pain, but declined treatment at the scene.

Royle was not injured in the crash, police said.

Chow received a summons for careless driving, failure to yield and making an improper turn, police said.

Police gave Georgiana a summons for operating an unregistered vehicle.

The crash closed Cedar Grove Lane for about an hour as the scene was cleared, police said.
