1 killed in 5-car accident in South Brunswick


Police are investigating a 5-car crash Monday night that left one person dead.

One person was killed on Monday following a multi-vehicle crash that shut down a South Brunswick intersection.

South Brunswick Police Det. Dennis Yuhasz said the five-vehicle accident was reported at 6:50 p.m. at the intersection of Route 535 and Route 32.

Yuhasz said he could not release the identity of the person who was killed or if they were a passenger or driver as police were still working to notify the person’s next of kin. He also could not comment on whether or not there were other injuries.

Police said the intersection will be closed for several hours while they continue to investigate the crash.
