UNION, NJ - A driver practicing his driving skills was involved in an accident last night when he mounted a curb, collided with a decorative light pole, and crashed into a residence. The driver, Jitendra Desai, told police that while he was practicing driving with a passenger in his car, a vehicle came up behind him. He pulled over to allow the car to pass. When he attempted to pull back into traffic, he accelerated rapidly, causing the car to jump the curb, hit the lightpost and then the residence.
