4 Killed, 11 Hurt In Easter N.J. Highway Crashes

New Jersey had one of its deadliest weekends in a while, with four dying in four crashes on major highways just on Easter alone. At least 11 people were also hurt.

None of the accidents were connected to each other, but law enforcement did report that traffic was heavy for the weekend as thousands took to the roads to visit relatives and took advantage of the warmer weather.

The warm temperatures also sent many to the beach. Indeed, Point Pleasant’s boardwalk was packed as temperatures neared the 90-degree mark and traffic was heavy at times on the Garden State Parkway.

And it was on the Garden State Parkway where a two-vehicle accident sent seven people to the hospital on Sunday. Two other Easter crashes involved wrong-way drivers, authorities say. Investigations into all of the crashes are continuing.

Here are those accidents that happened on Easter:

Also, a Maryland man was in critical condition after he was ejected from a van following a collision Saturday between the van and a pickup truck in Whiting, Manchester police said Sunday.
