At Least 6 Injured in Accident Outside Auto Auction in East Windsor

Six people have been injured in an accident outside Southern Auto Auction on South Main Street in East Windsor and they have been taken to the hospital.

Police said it appears a man might have suffered a medical emergency while he was driving, lost control of his vehicle and hit four pedestrians and a man who was in another car.  

Officials said all the victims are Southern Auto employees and two people sustained serious injuries. A police officer performed CPR on the driver.

“On behalf of Southern Auto Auction, our thoughts and hearts are with those impacted today,” Garrison Hudkins, of Southern Auto Auction, said. “The safety of our customers and our employees is our highest priority.” 

The 911 call reporting that several people had been injured came in around 9:30 a.m., police said, and they found the scene behind an auto auction building.

The driver might have also struck the building. 

Several ambulances responded to the scene and witnesses who described a chaotic scene.
