Infant, 2 Adults Seriously Injured In New Jersey Crash

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — An infant and two adults — including the child’s mother — were seriously injured when the sport utility vehicle they were riding in crashed into a wooded area in southern New Jersey.

The child’s father, who was driving, sustained minor injuries.

Hamilton Township police say 19-year-old Lyssa Piwowski was holding her 8-month-old son when the crash occurred around 5 a.m. Sunday. She was trapped inside by the wreckage, while her son and his grandmother, 53-year-old Joyce Calderwood, were ejected from the SUV.

All three were later airlifted to a hospital, but further details on their conditions were not disclosed. The driver, 25-year-old Jonathan Calderwood, was treated at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation. Authorities say no one in the SUV was wearing seat belts.

    They were in an emergency situation at 5 a.m. rushing the baby to hospital or something, from what i can gather by friend/family comments. Mother may have been administering cpr, who knows. Baby is a girl not a boy, AP got the story wrong.
