UPDATE: Couple Hospitalized After Route 1 Crash
West Windsor police report two people were flown from the scene in helicopters to Trenton trauma center.
A couple from New Brunswick, Canada, was injured when their motor home flipped after being struck on Route 1 in West Windsor on Monday afternoon.
Verne and Louise Beers, of Lower Woodstock, were flown to Capital Health Regional Medical Center after being extricated from their overturned motor home.
Shortly before 10 a.m. on Tuesday morning, Verne Beers, 68, was listed in serious condition and Louise Beers, 55, was listed in fair condition, according to a hospital spokesperson Don MacNeill.
The Beers were driving a 1987 Ford motor home north on Route 1 when they were struck at 3:29 p.m. by a 2006 Kia driven by Fady Abdelhady, 22, of King of Prussia, Pa., just north of the Quakerbridge Road overpass, said Sgt. Thomas Tarr, of the West Windsor Police Traffic Bureau. Abdelhady was driving in the left lane when he lost control of his car.
The motor home, which was being driven by Verne Beers, then slid and vaulted onto its side and flipped onto its top. The couple was trapped in the motor home and extricated by personnel from West Windsor Emergency Services, Tarr said.
Louise Beers was pulled from the vehicle first, followed a few minutes later by her husband.
The Beers were towing an SUV when they were struck, police said. Several news outlets initially reported that the motor home was struck by an SUV.
Abdelhady was not injured in the accident, Tarr said.
West Windsor was aided on scene by emergency personnel from Princeton Junction, Princeton and Lawrence Township.
The accident is under investigation by West Windsor Patrolman Michael McMahon. No charges have been filed.
Ramps to Quakerbridge Road and Route 1 northbound were closed for several hours after the crash. The road was reopened at 7:30 p.m., police said.
