Man faces drunken driving charge in wrong-way turnpike crash

WOOLWICH TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a Pennsylvania man was driving drunk and the wrong way on the New Jersey Turnpike when his car collided head-on with a minivan on Thanksgiving night, injuring himself and five others. The crash occurred Thursday night near Exit 2 on the highway in Woolwich Township. A New Jersey state police spokesman says 26-year-old Michael Forman, of Sellersville, was driving a car southbound in the northbound lanes near milepost 11.2 when he collided with a minivan carrying an Edison couple and their three children. The car then struck a concrete barrier before it came to a stop. Forman and two people in the minivan were seriously injured.
