SOUTH BRUNSWICK - South Brunswick police are looking into whether a driver suffered a medical episode prior to crashing into a South Brunswick police cruiser Monday afternoon.
Police say that Officer Gregory Boldizar was pulled off on the side of Route 130 southbound just before 1:30 p.m. after pulling over a tractor-trailer for speeding. While the officer was inside his car writing out the summons, he was struck from behind by a car driven by South Brunswick resident Jordan Pinnock, 24.
Witnesses told police that Pinnock had been driving in the left lane when he drifted into the right lane, then onto the shoulder, then partially onto the grass before striking the patrol car. Pinnock told Officer Boldizar that he did not know what happened, according to police.
Both Pinnock and Officer Boldizar were taken to Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center for treatment. They have both since been released and are recovering at their homes.
Investigators are looking into whether or not Pinnock had some type of medical episode right before the crash. So far, no charges have been filed.
