Secaucus County Avenue car accident

SECAUCUS, NJ — A serious motor vehicle collision took place on County Avenue in Secaucus on Wednesday afternoon, in close proximity to the County Ave. Dunkin’ Donuts and Goodfella’s Deli. As a result, traffic diversions were implemented for a significant portion of the afternoon.

By Thursday morning, the incident escalated into more than just a local matter. The New Jersey Attorney General has taken charge of the investigation, according to a spokeswoman for the Hudson County Prosecutor. This unusual step has been taken due to specific circumstances related to the crash. The New Jersey Attorney General typically intervenes in cases where a civilian death involves law enforcement.

The specifics of the accident are still coming to light. However, what is known is that it occurred approximately at noon on Wednesday near the intersection of County Avenue and Charles Street, as confirmed by the Secaucus Police Department.

In light of the ongoing investigation, the Hudson County Regional Collision Investigation Unit has taken control of the scene. As the analysis continues, authorities urge residents and visitors to avoid County Avenue south of the Secaucus Road intersection. Traffic diversions are being managed by the Hudson County Sheriffs on Secaucus Road.
