The incident occurred at about 5:50 p.m., when a 46-year-old West New York resident, who was traveling on JFK Boulevard in her white Volkswagen, was hit by a white Porsche – which was knocked into her vehicle by a U-Haul truck – the report says.

Both the driver of the Porsche and Volkswagen agreed the U-Haul truck caused the accident. Meanwhile, the U-Haul driver contends he was forced to swerve when a gray Toyota cut in front of him, police said.

The driver of the Volkswagen was taken to the Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen for minor injuries, while the driver and two passengers in the Porsche were treated at the Hoboken University Medical Center, authorities said, while the U-Haul driver and his passenger refused medical attention.

The U-Haul driver, Lawrence Hardy, from Jersey City, was ticketed for driving without a license, police said.

  1. Patrick, I don’t think you understand, we have 59,000 people in Wny . If everybody thanked the reporter for reporting an accident we would have people laughing at us .your only a resident and taxpayer like most of us. What it comes down too is your nobody. The only information I heard about you is you ran for commissioner and the board of education and lost both races , and you a sercurity guard .

    • You seem way too pre-occupied with how other WNY’er choose to comport themselves on this site, Mr. “Gumbotz.” When you are man (or woman) enough to use your real name, then you will merit my serious attention. Are you afraid to use your real name, or are you just a thug? Real men and women treat others rhe way they would like to be treated. Your juvenile comments reveal your lack of sincerity, maturity, and veracity. When you really want to have a constructive, intelligent conversation, I’ll be there.

  2. your a security guard and it’s obvious the way you conduct yourself . i wouldn’t vote for you as dog catcher because your not qualified to be anything but a security guard. you’ll never get elected to any elective office

    • My parents taught me to treat others the way I would want them to treat me. You think you can circumvent accountability to yourself or those you purposefully attempt to hurt by using a supposed cloak of anonymity. You were too arrogantly sloppy about! You left too many clues. I am reasonably certain I know who you are. I believed we actually hugged once. A person in your profession should never use that anonymity cloak the way you vindictively have. You should find a more productive outlet for your abilities which are considerable. I actually do like some of your ideas.

  3. Patrick, rumor has it you kissed enough butt to get on the WNY payroll . It that true ? If it’s true , your a phony out for yourself . Please Patrick , tell me it’s not true . Did you sell your soul to the devil ? Tell me it’s not true.
