NJ Teen Killed, Six Hurt in Wrong-Way Crash
Police say a teenage girl was killed and six other people were injured in a head-on, wrong-way crash late Wednesday night.
Police tell The Record of Woodland Park that the girl, who police have not named, was one of three passengers in a Ford Fusion being driven by a 16-year-old boy.
The Ford, which police say was driving southbound in the northbound lanes of Route 23 in West Milford, collided head-on with a Mercedes driven by 18-year-old Jaelen Moore of North Arlington, who was driving with two passengers.
Four of the six surviving passengers in the cars suffered significant injuries and were airlifted to local hospitals.
Two others suffered lesser injuries and were taken to the hospital by ambulance.
No charges have been filed in the ongoing investigation.
