South River, New Jersey (Reuters) - At approximately 4:15 yesterday afternoon, a Honda Civic driven by 31-year old Monica Reyas crashed into a Ford Escape, driven by 47-year old Steven Forrester, at the intersection of Main Street and Hillside Avenue in South River, New Jersey. Officials are baffled as to how the accident happened.
"I was going the speed limit," Reyas said. "I wasn't on the phone or listening to the radio or even yelling at my kids. I was just driving along and the next thing I knew, we crashed into each other."
Forrester, a gym teacher at a local high school, had much the same story.
"I was just driving down the street, minding my own business, when all of a sudden, we crashed," Forrester offered. "I wasn't talking on the phone or nothing. I wasn't even looking around at the chicks. I don't understand it."
Officer John Christopher, the first official on the scene, corroborates their stories. "I was driving by when it happened. Neither one of them were acting like a fool or anything," he said. "When they crashed, I immediately stopped and assessed the situation. Neither driver had been drinking. Both were wearing their seatbelts. And both also seemed equally unsure just why the accident happened."
Mayor Raymond T. Eppinger issued a statement at a press conference later in the afternoon: "I have set up the Blameless Accident Learning Special Action Committee to investigate the matter fully. BALSAC will report directly to me and won't rest until the hairy details of the accident are revealed for everyone to see. There has to be a reason for this accident and my BALSAC will find out why."
Neither Reyas nor Forrester needed medical attention and neither had any actual car damage. They did not exchange insurance information and as of the time of this report, there has been no actual accident report filed. Officer Christopher said that the mayor's BALSAC reserves the right to file a report in the future should anything new be uncovered.
