HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, NJ – A driver experiencing a medical emergency at the Hamilton Marketplace shopping mall on a busy afternoon resulted in a multiple car accident, according to the Hamilton Police Division (HPD). At around 3:00 pm on Saturday, HPD responded to a “lockdown call” outside the Party City store.
HPD said the driver, identified as Ernest Seubery, 91, of Monroe Township, was driving his Nissan Altima in 2005 when it suffered a serious medical episode. As a result, his car crashed into a snow bank and caused a four-car accident.
Members of Engine 19 of the Hamilton Fire Department (HFD) quickly arrived at the location where they immediately stabilized the car to get Seubert and his passenger out safely. HFD members also provided emergency medical care until the ambulance arrived.
