LOTS OF ACCIDENTS
Few With Injuries. Last week’s snow storm which began as freezing rain and left road surfaces still slippery when the snow was cleared; led to a number of skidding accidents in the area.
Township police had reports of 14 skidding accidents. On the busiest day — Thursday — six were recorded. Only one involved injuries. In the Borough there were three skidding mishaps.
The lone accident with injuries took place shortly after 11 last Wednesday evening when a car operated by Michael S. Chyi, 30, 417B Butler Avenue, began to skid on patches of ice and snow on Princeton-Kingston Road near Carnegie Drive. His car slid into the opposite lane, turned completely around and struck a tree on the property of Walter Foster, 740 Princeton- Kingston Road.
Mr. Chyi was treated at the Princeton Medical Center for lacerations of the hands and arms. A passenger, Yuhju Chyi, 24, was also treated at the hospital for lacerations of the head.
