LINDEN - Seven people are injured after witnesses say a speeding car flipped over and triggered a three-car accident at a Linden gas station yesterday.

The accident happened on the southbound side of Route 1/9. One witness at a neighboring used-car dealership says a speeding Acura cut off another car, then hit a utility pole, knocking it over.

Once the car hit the pole, the witness says the car flipped over and hit a car that was turning into the gas station. That car then crashed into a third car, which was being filled with gasoline.

A gas pump was also knocked over in the incident.

Seven people were taken to hospitals. At least one was listed in critical condition.
