A six-vehicle crash on Oct. 29 closed part of Easton Avenue for two hours and sent one person to the hospital, police said.

The crash,which happened during the morning rush hour, involved a tractor-trailer, police said.

Police received numerous calls about the crash at about 7:19 a.m., according to a press release about the incident. Arriving officers shut down Easton Ave. between Willow Avenue and Cedar Grove Lane during the investigation.

Police said a 2004 Ford F250 operated by Daniel Geiger, 27, of Jackson was traveling northbound on Easton Avenue when it crossed over the center line into the southbound lanes. The truck struck a 2015 Subaru Forrester that was driven by Karen Migliorino, 48, of Montville. The impact sent the Subaru into a spin before it crashed into a 2005 Dodge Caravan driven by Sanela Grgic, 27, of Monmouth Junction.

Geiger’s car then continued on and hit a Volvo tractor-trailer driven by Valdas Bimba, 48, of Warrington, Pa.

Geiger’s car continued northbound, colliding with a Volvo V60 driven by Lisa Denzin, 50, of Bridgewater. The Ford came to rest after hitting head-on a 2015 Lexus driven by Linda Ashforth, 52, of Whitehouse Station.

Police said all of the drivers suffered minor injuries and refused medical attention except for Migliorino, who was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Geiger was cited for careless driving and Grgic was cited for operating a vehicle with a suspended license.

Cpl. Mike Deutchman of the Franklin Township Police Department’s Traffic Safety Bureau investigated the crash. Anyone with information about this crash is asked to contact Cpl. Deutchman at (732) 873-5533 extension 3110.
