Lots of Accidents, Few with Injuries

18 January, 1984


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.
