A man was ejected from his SUV, with the vehicle flipping over onto its roof, with two females suffering relatively minor injuries as the result of an early morning crash near the Holland Tunnel, police said.
At about 12:30 a.m., Port Authority police received a call of an overturned vehicle near the intersection of Erie and 14th Streets in Jersey City with multiple injuries, according to Port Authority police spokesman Joe Pentangelo.
Upon arrival, officers observed one male on the ground after he had been ejected from the SUV, with seven passengers also standing outside of the vehicle, officials said.
The ejected male sustained a head injury, a 5-year-old female sustained abdominal and head injuries and a 54-year-old female sustained a head and neck injury, authorities said.
All parties were treated at the Jersey City Medical Center-Barnabas Health and at around 2:00 a.m., medical staff reported that all three individuals were in stable condition, police said.
The Port Authority Police Department’s Accident Investigation Team intermittently closed Westbound 14th Street a clean-up and examination of the accident were performed, which resulted in no summonses or arrests, officials said.
