Fatal one-car accident on Route 3 in Secaucus

SECAUCUS — On Tuesday, Oct. 4 Lance Leedy, 56, of Hasbrouck Heights was traveling on the “main body” of Route 3 West in a 2001 Ford Explorer, according to a press release from the Secaucus Police Department. At approximately 8:08 p.m. Leedy veered over the grass median onto the Route 3 West Service Road. In the area of the Maple Street Ramp he struck a utility pole and his vehicle overturned. At some point during the crash Leedy was ejected from his vehicle.
After being treated for serious injuries at the scene he was transported to Hackensack University Medical Center, but he died from his injuries at 2:28 a.m.
The crash is still actively being investigated by the Secaucus Police Department Traffic Division, therefore the cause of this one-car motor vehicle crash has yet to be determined.
“On behalf of the Secaucus Police Department, our prayers go out to the Leedy family,” Secaucus Police Chief Kevin Flaherty said in the press release.
This crash is the second fatal crash in Secaucus in 2016. Anyone who may have witnessed this crash or who has any information on the crash are asked to contact the Secaucus Police Traffic Division at (201) 809-4603 or traffic@secaucus.net.
