Driver injured after vehicle slams into Hunterdon County barn

FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, NJ (Hunterdon County) – The driver of a vehicle that slammed into the ” So this is Pittstown” barn in Hunterdon County Saturday night was taken to the hospital for injuries, according to a post on the Quakertown NJ Fire Company-91 Fire/Rescue’s Facebook page.

At around 9:20 p.m., emergency crews responded to Pittstown Road in Pittstown for a car that struck a building with entrapment, authorities said.

Once on scene, crews started patient care on the driver who was extricated prior to fire company units arriving, authorities said.

The driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported St Luke’s Anderson Campus, the post said.

Inspection of the structure determined a load bearing wall had been significantly damaged and that a response from the Hunterdon County Technical Rescue Task Force was necessary. Several resources from South Branch and Flemington-Raritan Rescue Squads responded and stabilized the structure for temporary needs, the post said.

The cause of the accident is under investigation by the Franklin Township Police Department.

“The “barn” has been hit as many know numerous times over the years. Some of the team that just finished fixing the barn from the November accident were already onscene last night sizing up the next project,” authorities said.
