TRANSIT ALERT: NJ Transit service resumes in both directions between Rahway, Trenton
New Jersey Transit service has resumed in both directions between Rahway and Trenton.
A one-car accident overnight on Talmadge Road in Edison wreaked havoc for rail commuters on the Northeast Corridor. The accident took out a utility pole near the train track overpass.
Police say the accident happened around 2:15 a.m. A male driver was taken to the hospital, treated and released. There is no word yet on what caused the accident.
The base of the pole was taken out, but the top was dangling from the power lines. This caused power issues for the tracks, which shut down not just NJ Transit service but also Amtrak service both ways from Philadelphia to New York City.
