Bayonne man driving with suspended license charged in Route 440 crash

A Bayonne man has been charged with causing serious bodily injury while driving with a suspended license for his involvement in a crash last week at the intersection of Route 440 and Route 185 in Jersey City, according to the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office.

On June 12 at approximately 8 a.m., Ramon Quinones, 54, turned himself in to detectives with the Hudson County Regional Collision Investigation Unit. Quinones was charged with causing serious bodily injury while driving with a suspended license.

Quinones was involved in a serious motor vehicle crash involving a second car on Route 440 South in Jersey City on June 4, at approximately 6:30 a.m.

At the intersection with Route 185 South, Quinones was involved in a crash in which the other driver, a 34-year-old Bayonne man, sustained serious injuries.

According to the investigation, the victim was traveling southbound on Route 440 when his vehicle, a 2012 Honda Accord, was struck by Quinones who was traveling southbound on Route 185 operating a 1992 Toyota Celica.

Both drivers were transported to the Jersey City Medical Center, but Quinones was released shortly thereafter having sustained only a minor injury.

The above charges are merely accusations, and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

HCCC’s plans for the fall semester

Hudson County Community College President Dr. Chris Reber announced that most fall 2020 for-credit, workforce development and noncredit courses will be offered online or remotely. Many lab, culinary, health sciences, and related courses could be offered in person pending state approval.

By offering more classes virtually the college will be able to offer fewer courses in person if permitted by the state. This means students can socially-distance for in-person instruction.
