Stafford Drive flooding leads to Accident

PRINCETON — A tow truck was needed to remove a vehicle from flooding near Stafford Drive on Tuesday morning.

An eyewitness to the accident reported that she had witnessed a female driver in a Nissan Pathfinder attempt to turn into a nonexistent entrance to Long John Silver’s.

Turning from Stafford Drive onto Bee Street, the woman didn’t recognize that the entrance was not in that location and her car became stuck on a ridge of grass according to the witness.

The witness also reported that she had called 911 as soon as it happened at approximately 10 a.m.

Princeton Police officer T.A. Bailey echoed those comments, “She was turning in here and just missed it because of the flooding.”

No one was injured in the accident.
