Saturday, August 03, 2013

Police say a tractor-trailer making an illegal U-turn collided with an SUV on a New Jersey highway, killing a mother and her two young sons. The truck driver has been charged with three counts of death by auto.

Mercer County prosecutors tell The Times of Trenton that the crash happened Friday night on Route 1 in Lawrence.

Killed in the crash were 25-year-old Jamella Tisdale, her infant son, Jaden, and her 9-year-old son, Jaevon Durante.

The infant's father and the woman's 8-year-old daughter remained hospitalized Saturday in stable condition.

Prosecutors say the family was from Levittown, Pa.

The truck driver was 45-year-old Richard Williams, of Brooklyn.

He was being held Saturday on $100,000 bail.
