WESTAMPTON — Ten people were taken to hospitals Monday morning when a can carrying special-needs passengers collided with a prison van.
Westampton Police Chief Stephen Ent said that the Friends for Cyrus van ran a stop sign at the intersection of Jacksonville Road and Oxmead Road around 9:35 a.m. It struck the Department of Corrections van. There is also a flashing red and yellow light over the intersection.
Three corrections officers, three inmates and three adults in the Friends of Cyrus van were taken to the hospital as a precaution to be checked over for non-life threatening injuries.
The front of the DOC van was heavily damaged.
The driver of the Friends of Cyrus van was charged with careless driving.
Friends of Cyrus provides services to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. They have offices in Piscataway and Medford.

We used NUKEMAP by Alex Wellerstein
to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington or New Jersey.
The models show what would happen in aerial detonation, meaning the bomb would be set off in the sky, causing considerable damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a ground detonation, which would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from fallout.
