A 79-year-old driver lost control of his minivan and toppled a traffic signal pole in Jersey City’s McGinley Square Thursday afternoon after striking it, the Jersey Journal is reporting.
Police responded to the corner of Bergen Avenue and Montgomery Street at around 1 p.m. where the traffic pole was lying across Bergen Avenue,
The Central Avenue resident told police that when he started his car, which was parked on Bergen Avenue in front of Hudson Catholic High School, it “accelerated beyond control and the brakes would not respond,” the report states.
This caused him to drive up onto the sidewalk and strike a tree. The vehicle then continued south in the northbound lanes of Bergen Avenue, before striking the traffic signal pole and coming to a stop shortly thereafter, according to the accident report.
The minivan sustained significant front-end damage in the accident and was towed from the scene.
It’s unclear if the man sustained any injuries.
