A two-car crash at Valley Road and the Union County Parkway around 5:45 p.m. today resulted in no major injuries but did cause a section of the road to be closed to traffic for about 30 minutes.
One of the drivers (who asked not to be identified by name) claims the other driver was making a left from Union County Parkway onto Valley Road without stopping as he was driving on the road towards Linden and hit her. He was driving a silver Mitsubishi Lancer and says he was not speeding.
The woman he hit was driving a blue Jeep Cherokee with a toddler in the backseat. Neither she nor her child sustained major injuries according to police and both drivers refused medical attention.
The road was reopened at about 6:15 p.m.
Raj Gandhi, who lives near the crash scene at 468 Valley Road, said speeding along Valley Road is a major issue.
"Stand here for a half hour and you'll see that every other car is speeding," Gandhi told Patch. "People see the double line and think it's a highway, but the speed limit is 25 mph. There used to be a sign posted, but it came down after a storm. It happens coming both ways on Valley Road."
