Unidentified man killed in Newark ambulance crash - New Jersey

     

Monday, November 12, 2012 By Ben Horowitz

An unidentified man was killed Saturday night after a car that police had tried to stop collided with an ambulance in Newark, according to State Police.

Officials are investigating the crash and have not yet determined whether the victim was a pedestrian or a passenger in the car involved in the accident, said State Police spokesman Sgt. Brian Polite.

The chain of events began at about 10 p.m. when a trooper observed “multiple moving violations” by the car, a 2002 Lincoln Continental, which was traveling east on Route 280 in Newark, Polite said.

The driver, Alqamar Anderson, 35, of Newark, “increased speed and attempted to elude the trooper before the trooper had a chance to pursue the vehicle,” Polite said.

The Lincoln got off 280 at the First Street exit and ran a red light while traveling southbound on Norfolk Street, where it was involved in a “T-bone collision” with an ambulance going east on Central Avenue, Polite said. As a result of the collision, the Lincoln hit a utility pole, Polite said.

The driver of the University Hospital ambulance and his passenger were not injured, Polite said. Anderson suffered minor injuries and was treated at University Hospital, according to Polite.

Anderson was charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and driving while intoxicated and is being held on $50,000 bail with no 10 percent option, Polite said.

Authorities are attempting to identify the dead man as well as trying to determine whether he was a passenger or a pedestrian, Polite said.
