OLD BRIDGE, N.J. (AP) – Authorities say a limousine driver died when his vehicle was struck head-on by an Old Bridge police car.
Anatoliy Verbitski was less than a mile from his home.
Middlesex County prosecutors say Officer Brendan Ward swerved after hitting two deer and went into the limo driver’s lane yesterday.
Ward is a six-year veteran of the force. He’s in stable condition.
The limo driver was 50 years old and the married father of two college-bound daughters.
The crash is under investigation.
