Two injured in auto accident 

A mother and son escaped serious injury when the car she was driving struck a utility pole near the Princeton Township police department building on state Route 206 Friday, police and a hospital spokeswoman said.

Loretta Wohar, 49, of Carver Place, Lawrence, and her son, Mark, 30, address unknown, were transported to the Medical Center at Princeton, treated for cuts and bruises, and released the same day following the 2:58 p.m. mishap, the spokeswoman said. 

Police Sgt. Mario Musso said Ms. Wohar was driving her white 1986 Nissan 300ZX northbound on Route 206 when she lost control of the vehicle just south of the Valley Road intersection. 

“According to her statement, she went to console her son by placing her hand on his arm…When her attention was diverted, she went off to her right, down on the grass, and struck the pole,” the sergeant said, adding the crash caused extensive damage to the car’s front end. 

Route 206 traffic was backed up temporarily, but police said it was cleared up soon after the mishap. 

The sergeant said no charges were filed against the driver.
