Today's New York Times details the crash that snarled traffic so badly on the Garden State Parkway during last evening's rush hour:
Seven people were ejected and four of them critically injured when a van carrying nine people flipped over on the Garden State Parkway yesterday afternoon, the New Jersey State Police said.
The accident occurred near Exit 153 near Clifton, N.J.
The van was returning to the North Jersey Developmental Center in Totowa from an outing at Sandy Hook, officials said. In the van were four men, all 18 or 19 years old, who lived at the center; four staff members, including the driver; and a physical therapist under contract to the agency, the police said.
Only two people in the van, both in the front seat, wore seatbelts and they were the only passengers not thrown onto the parkway during the accident.
