Police said Walker's 2011 Ford F-150 truck was headed north on the road when he struck a utility pole, and went off the roadway. No serious injuries were reported.

Hillsborough Rescue Squad and Hillsborough Fire Co. 3 volunteers also responded to the incident.

Hillsborough police are continuing to investigate the accident.

There is no speed enforcement in Hillsborough.

Morning and evening commuters use Amsterdam Drive to practice for Nascar qualifying.

The accident happened on River Rd not Amsterdam...what does your comment have to do with the topic?
Maria February 04, 2013 at 06:01 AM
Either the cops in this town harass residents with traffic stops or there's no traffic enforcement...which is it?

If you are having problems with speeders, contact the HTPD traffic department and report the problem. Try to be specific..i.e. when school gets out, during the morning commute, etc. When they respond to your complaint and assign an officer to enforce the traffic laws, don't complain when local residents get tickets.

Since I'm raising the concern, why would I complain if someone is ticketed?
Viking February 05, 2013 at 03:58 AM
Maria, It's a general concern over the lack of speed enforcement in the township as voiced by others here.
Maria February 05, 2013 at 04:23 AM
I have to agree with S.G. There are only so many officers in town and they cannot be everywhere all the time. In reference to why you would complain, because everyone likes to get on a soapbox til it happens in their backyard. So when its your son, wife, mother etc. who gets the ticket when they are running late to work, school etc, don't blame the cop who you wanted to enforce the speed limit, like so many do.
Viking February 05, 2013 at 04:33 AM
Maria, Please read more carefully. If I want more enforcement of the speed limit, then I won't be complaining. If you traveled on Amsterdam, then you would know what I'm referring to.

Or Hamilton, or Sunnymead, or Triangle, or Dukes Parkway West, or Amwell, or New Amwell, or Beekman, etc, etc,etc.

Well I have to say.. I wasn't speeding. N deer can sure cause a lot of damage... if it didn't happen so quickly I would done things a lot different. Oh n this was my first accident I've ever had.. avoided a lot though....
