A 19-year-old Florida woman was killed and three other people were hurt early yesterday when three cars collided on the New Jersey Turnpike in Newark, State Police said.
The accident occurred just after 5 a.m. on the southbound off-ramp leading to Interchanges 14A, B and C. State Police Sgt. Jeanne Hengemuhle said a 2003 Ford Crown Victoria was stopped for an unknown reason in the ramp's center lane when it was rear-ended by a 1996 Toyota RAV4. The Crown Victoria shot forward and smashed into the back of a 2005 Toyota Sienna, which had stopped to assist the Crown Victoria, Hengemuhle said.
Both the Crown Victoria and RAV4 burst into flames. The Florida woman, who was sitting in the back seat of the Crown Victoria, was trapped inside the vehicle and died in the fire, Hengemuhle said. The woman has not been identified.
The car's driver, 30-year-old Selim Koskar of Brooklyn, suffered burns throughout his body and was taken to Saint Barnabas Medical Center for treatment.
The driver of the RAV4, 22-year-old Ramon Sanchez of Jersey City, suffered broken ribs and facial lacerations, Hengemuhle said. Yoa Murry, 44, of the Bronx, who was driving the Sienna, suffered burns to his right leg. Both Sanchez and Murry were taken to University Hospital in Newark, Hengemuhle said.
The accident forced authorities to close the Interchange for more than five hours. It was reopened at around 10:15 a.m. from fashionweekdaily
(NEW YORK) After a flurry of Internet rumors sparked speculation in the fashion world, the unfortunate gossip has been confirmed: model Heather Bratton was killed in a car crash over the weekend. The 19-year-old Tampa, Fl. native, described by those in the industry as “smart and soft spoken,” was en route to Newark International Airport in a taxi that was struck by another vehicle. In her first fashion season, Bratton walked for style luminaries like Chanel, Dior, Marc Jacobs, and Prada. She also starred in this season’s Balenciaga campaign and was the focus of Steven Meisel’s recent cover of Vogue Italia.
When called for comment, Bratton’s American agency, Women Management, said, “What happened is horrible and our week has been very sad…we love Heather.”
