The northbound lanes between Manhattan Avenue and North Street were closed for hours as authorities investigated the wreck.The crash occurred at about 3 a.m. The Hudson County Regional Fatal Collision Unit, which was established earlier this year, responded to the scene.One car flipped over and the other jumped the curb, hitting a telephone pole and destroying the gate of a nearby building.This came two days after Mayor Steven Fulop announced the city’s adopting of a “Vision Zero” policy in an effort to eliminate deaths and serious injuries.Fulop issued an executive order that allowed Jersey City to join with more than 30 municipalities seeking to establish traffic safety strategies.The crash occurred in the same section of Tonnelle Avenue where a police chase last June resulted in a vehicle bursting into flames.last_img read more
