This morning at approximately 8 a.m., Ramon Quinones, 54, turned himself in to detectives with the Hudson County Regional Collision Investigation Unit and was charged with causing serious bodily injury while driving with a suspended license, Suarez said in a statement.

On Thursday, June 4, 2020, at approximately 6:30 a.m., Quinones was involved in a serious motor vehicle crash involving a second car on Route 440 South in Jersey City at the intersection with Route 185 South in which the other driver, a 34-year-old Bayonne man, sustained serious injuries.

According to the investigation, the victim was traveling southbound on Route 440 when his vehicle, a 2012 Honda Accord, was struck by Quinones who was traveling southbound on Route 185 operating a 1992 Toyota Celica.

Both drivers were transported to the Jersey City Medical Center, but Quinones was released shortly after since he only sustained a minor injury.

Suarez credited the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Regional Collision Investigation Unit for the investigation and arrest.
