EWING TOWNSHIP – A 60-year-old man was killed on Route 31 in one of two crashes on the road Wednesday afternoon.
Ewing Police Lieutenant Glenn Tettemer said the man was shot in the northbound lanes at around 5.50pm at the junction with Somerset Street near Pennington Road Fire Station. The man was taken to Capital Health Regional Medical Center where he died of his injuries.
The motorist has stopped and is collaborating with the investigators.
Police identified the victim as Michael Roche, 60, of Hamilton. Tettemer did not disclose the cause of the crash.
Tipping in front of TCNJ
Approximately an hour earlier, Route 31 was closed by a two-vehicle crash that resulted in a pickup truck overturned at the entrance to TCNJ. The other vehicle, a sedan, was badly damaged at the front.
Tettemer said there were no injuries in the crash but didn’t have more details.
MidJersey.news reported that neither driver was injured and they were able to exit their vehicles.
TCNJ spokesman Luke Sacks told New Jersey 101.5 that no one affiliated with the college was involved in the incident.
It was the first fatal accident in Mercer County this year. There were no fatalities on Route 31 in Ewing in 2022.
