Bad car crash – 14th & Willow

Fatal car accident near Malibu Diner in Hoboken NJ

Reports that a “very bad” car accident took place around 5:45am this morning near the Malibu Diner on 14th Street between Park and Willow.

Hoboken Police have requested the Hudson County Prosecutors Office and Sheriff’s department on scene. This typically means a FATALITY is involved. They’re also asking for accident scene re-constructors.

No doubt sounds deadly. Avoid the area entirely until it’s cleared.

6:00am Update: Confirmed fatality. This involved an AmCare ambulance (lic. plate #XE-966X) which augments ambulatory service beyond the Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps and a New York City Yellow Cab (lic. plate #5H75B). The taxi driver appears OK, as well as the patient in the ambulance. Unsure if the fatality was an EMT or a passenger of the cab.

6:30am Update: Not confirmed yet – but it sounds like the AmCare ambulance driver was the one who was killed in this accident. Additionally, a street pole was knocked down, and was one of the locations of a Hoboken video surveillance camera. HPD is checking to see if it was operational. They’ve also requested video footage from the BP gas station.

7:00am Update: Found out that it was actually a waitress who worked at the Malibu Diner who perished in this accident. Very tragic.

    Wow, I heard the crash from my window at the Upper Grand. Startled me quite a bit. Those New York cabs drive way too recklessly, don’t understand NJ crosswalk laws and are a menace to our city. Condonlences to the family of whomever lost their life in this accident.

    Who hit who? Somebody must have been at fault here. Anybody see the accident scene before the vehicles were removed? I saw a fire truck, ambulance and cop cars there around 9 am, but didn’t see the vehicles that were involved.

    Not really surprised. That’s the same corner (different side) where there was that fatal accident a few years ago when someone came flying down the viaduct and rear-ended some innocent people at a stop light.

    Nothing much is going to change around here until the police actually get serious about traffic offenses in New Jersey.

      This woke me up also.
      I couldn’t believe what we saw when we looked out the window. This is tragic and I feel for her family and friends. The reaction from the Diner staff was very hard to watch.

      @bmac – From what I heard – the ambulance was apparently speeding (50-60mph). She had gone across the street to the gas station – either to make a deliver or pick up something from the mini-mart. I think the cab was parked and unoccupied as the driver went to get a cup of coffee. There were no skid marks from what I was told. One of those “wrong place wrong time” situations. She was only 28 years old, and well-liked by everyone. Very sad.

        Yes i remember that crash a few years back. Apparantly the woman intentionally sped down the viaduct and rear ended a few cars waiting at the red light, killing herself and a couple of innocent people in the other cars. There was no signs of her attempting to stop. Imagine if those cars weren’t there to stop her at the bottom of the viaduct[quote comment=”210788″]For some reason that viaduct suicide was covered up.[/quote]

        Aside from speeding through three cities she was also drunk and on drugs…several 911 calls to the Hudson County 911 Command Center run by the Hudson County Sheriffs Department verified this. The family, woman included was very close with several Hudson County Politicians and top cops. Absolute cover-up. The results have still never been released and going through the court process since.
