Police: Township Woman Hit Twice By Autos On Route 27

A 29-year-old township woman escaped with non-life threatening injuries Sept. 23 after she was hit by two different autos on Route 27.

Police said Kernita A. Caines was crossing Rt. 27 just north of Reler Lane when she was hit by a 2008 Acura MDX driven by Sam John, 33, of North Brunswick.

The impact knocked Caines into the northbound lane of Rt, 27, where she was hit by a 2001 Ford Expedition driven by Floyd Hercules, 51, of Edison.

Caines was transported to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick with what were at first thought to be life-threatening injuries, police said. After she was examined, doctors treated Caines for non-letahal facial injuries, after which she was released.

Rt. 27 was shut down for about three hours that night.

Police said no charges have been filed as of yet; the accident is still under investigation by the township police’s Traffic Safety Bureau.
