MONROE – An East Windsor man was arrested on Thursday for his alleged involvement in a possible road-rage incident that left one person seriously injured, township police said.

According to police, the accident occurred on May 29 around 3:15 p.m. on Route 33 eastbound.

The East Windsor man, identified as Corey Hamilton, was charged with assault by auto, leaving the scene of an accident, reckless and careless driving and unsafe lane change.

It is alleged that Hamilton was driving his Chevy Impala when he started to brake cutting off the driver of a Chevy Silverado, causing the Silverado to swerve and hit the rear end of a traffic control vehicle that was parked on the side of Route 33. In the mix, a driver of a Honda CRV hit the Silverado and the parked traffic control vehicle.

The driver of the Silverado was seriously injured and had a broken leg. The driver was initially treated at the scene before being transported to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. The driver of the CRV had an arm injury and the two people in the traffic control truck received minor injuries.

Police allege that Hamilton left the scene, but was followed by witnesses who recorded his license plate number.

The investigation is still ongoing. Police ask that anyone with information to call Police Department Traffic Safety Division at 732-521-0222, ext. 126.
