Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez has released the following information:

A Bayonne man has been arrested and charged with causing serious bodily injury while driving with a suspended license for his involvement in a crash last week at the intersection of Route 440 and Route 185 in Jersey City.

On Friday, June 12, 2020, at approximately 8 a.m., Ramon Quinones, 54, turned himself in to detectives with the Hudson County Regional Collision Investigation Unit and was charged with Causing Serious Bodily Injury While Driving with a Suspended License in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:40-22b, a crime of the fourth degree.

On Thursday, June 4, 2020, at approximately 6:30 a.m., Quinones was involved in a serious motor vehicle crash involving a second car on Route 440 South in Jersey City at the intersection with Route 185 South in which the other driver, a 34-year-old Bayonne man, sustained serious injuries.

According to the investigation, the victim was traveling southbound on Route 440 when his vehicle, a 2012 Honda Accord, was struck by Quinones who was traveling southbound on Route 185 operating a 1992 Toyota Celica. Both drivers were transported to the Jersey City Medical Center, but Quinones was released shortly after having sustained only a minor injury.

Prosecutor Suarez credited the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Regional Collision Investigation Unit for the investigation and arrest.

The above charge(s) are merely accusations, and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty. R.P.C.3.6(b)(6).
