Woman injured in crash on GSP

31 12 2007

CLIFTON — A driver was left with serious leg injuries and traffic was snarled for two hours following a crash on the Garden State Parkway this morning, police said. At about 8:30 Monday morning, Diane Nachbaur, 49, of Woodcliff Lake slammed her car into the guardrail on the northbound Garden State Parkway just before the Exit 155P ramp to Route 19, according to Sgt. Stephen Jones of the state police. He said no other vehicles were involved and that Nachbaur may have fallen asleep at the wheel. Nachbaur was airlifted to the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark, where she was undergoing surgery, police said. One witness, who didn’t want to be named, said she saw a woman with a mangled leg lying face down in a pool of blood on the highway. “It looked like her leg was torn off,” the witness said. “It was horrifying.” A man and a young girl stood by watching, but it was unclear if they were related to the driver. northjersey.com

i witnessed the accident and it was definitely horrible as stated above. The woman was lying motionless right in the center of the middle lane of the GSP. My thoughts were exactly what the witness said, that her leg was torn off. seeing that at 8:30 AM on new years eve made me that much more cautious on a day thats known for accidents.

You may have saved her life with that call as she was medivaced and revived on the medivac. She is fighting for her life.

The woman who got into the accident is my mother. She is still in the hospital and is slowly but surely coming along and improving day by day.

and to shlomo..she was NOT on her cell phone.

I was the 10 year old daughter in the car with my mother. She did fall asleep at the wheel and was seriously injured.
