[BREAKING] N.J. Gov. Corzine Hurt In Car Accident
WBZTV.COM ^ | 12 APRIL 2007 | AP

Posted on 04/12/2007 3:53:15 PM PDT by Extremely Extreme Extremist

(CBS) GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. New Jersey Gov. Jon S. Corzine was injured Thursday night in a car accident on the Garden State Parkway, but a spokesman says the injuries are not considered life-threatening.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Jon Corzine was elected governor of New Jersey in November 2006, soundly beating Republican businessman Doug Forrester in a race that set records for campaign spending but alienated voters with its mean-spirited politicking. With 97 percent of precincts reporting, Corzine had 53 percent to Forrester's 44 percent.

Now they’re saying that it was the Governor’s car and a trooper car. ???

He was in a motorcade, so there was more than one car. You can see the tire tracks in WCAU's slideshow photos.

illegal aliens kill 12 Americans per day in vehicle crashes.
They kill another 13 per day in violent crime.
We don’t need them here.

I suppose a governor's car likely travels with a trooper escort, perhaps a couple two or three of them? Is this to say that *both* the gov's vehicle and a trooper's vehicle were involved?

I'm picturing the hit-n-run driver swerved or otherwise initiated some kind of chain-reaction accident? then drove off...

“Car off road”.

That’s not a car — it’s one of those SUVs

They way Shep said it was that it was a two car accident, the Governor's SUV and a trooper car. He said nothing about a hit and run driver.

ABC6 in Philadelphia is reporting that Corzine was taken by helicopter to Cooper Medical Center, which is apparently in Camden. An injured state trooper who was also injured was taken to Atlantic City Medical Center.

Also, the motorcade was reportedly cut off, not necessarily hit, so the "fleeing" driver might not know what he or she did.

Golly... if true that's almost, what? five percent? Maybe that might even be something that matters in this story. Or maybe not. That you have no idea is clear too. Maybe it was a drunk driver. Maybe it was a sober driver. Maybe it was a black. Maybe it was a mexican. Or worse... one of them dang Canadians. Maybe it was a mexican woman talking on a cell phone. to mexico.

LOL... is this the friday silliness thread?

There aren't "accidents" anymore, they're all "crashes" (unless it involves government employees or elected officials, of course).

“Because only illegals get in accidents?”

No, but illegals are more likely to flee, since the stakes are much higher for them.

With 97 percent of precincts reporting, Corzine had 53 percent to Forrester's 44 percent.

they still only have 97% of precincts reporting? If so, this really really calls into question the already idotic calls to suspend the Electoral College.

You’re a far better person than I.

My prayers are for the Officer, as well as any worms or crawling things that might have been in the area at the time. Oh, and for the blades of grass that may have been hurt.

As for Corzine..... nothing but democrat a speed bump.

You don’t suppose Imus in a rush to reach the Rutgers players’ meeting cut-off the Government convoy? (just kidding)
Yes, the news reports are maddening. It sounds like the Governor was riding with a Tropper driver and both have been medivaced by helicopters. Shep emphasized the injuries are not life threatening. The hit-skip driver is in big trouble, if they ever find him, and that depends on if there was a collusion (paint samples, etc), whether cameras were in operation, etc..

Anybody want to bet that the Gov & NJSP were traveling at an excessive speed? Car in traffic pulls over to the passing lane to go around another car - doesn’t realize the speed or see the approaching (speeding) cars.

The true definition of "accident" is "The inadvertant winning of an election by a Republican in a Blue State, despite multiple recounts."

You don’t normally get arrested for a traffic accident even if the governor is involved unless your illegal in some way...

Or unless you’re wanted for something else like a robbery or burglary. Or if you’re freaked. Or if it was your fault. There are a lot of reasons people leave. You can’t possibly think that only illegals get involved in hit and runs.

The NJ governor gets a police escort. The governor was in a two-car motorcade, and a NJ State Trooper was also injured in the accident.

If you consider illegal aliens criminals, which I do... then with 12 million illegal aliens in this country, most of the criminals in this country are illegal aliens. Do the math... Or for you, do the arithmetic .
