According to Hoboken Detective / Lieutenant Danilo Cabrera, an off duty police officer spotted a two car, motor vehicle crash near 15th Street and Park Avenue.
One of the operators involved in the crash sustained minor injuries. He told police the following: As he had the green light and was traveling northbound through the intersection, the other operator, identified as Kittredge, was traveling the wrong way on 15th Street and crashed into his driver side.
