Robbinsville, NJ — A student from Harvard was killed and three others were injured after a major accident on the NJ Turnpike/I-95 that involved two 18-wheeler trucks. The accident happened at about 12:30 a.m. Monday morning, February 10, near mile marker 60. Angela Mathew, 20, was identified as the deceased woman.
Police said that Mathew was a passenger in a minivan with three other people when the driver lost control in the northbound lanes of the turnpike. The minivan swerved out of its lane and crashed in a barrier.
The minivan then over-corrected and went back into traffic, where it was struck by two passing 18-wheelers. The impact ejected Mathew and she passed away immediately. The three others in the minivan were taken to a hospital with non-critical injuries.
Police confirmed that Mathew was a student at Harvard University studying neurobiology. They’re investigating the accident further and haven’t determined why the minivan driver lost control.
