Driver Blames Faulty Accelerator Pedal For Car Crash
June 8, 2010

Millburn Police Department Patrol Commander Capt. James Miller sent the following update on the car crash yesterday morning into the apartments at 220 Millburn Avenue. In a separate e-mail, Capt. Miller explained that, while the driver of the car said that the crash was caused by a faulty accelerator pedal, "The vehicle had extensive front-end damage, was towed from the scene and a mechanical inspection was not performed."

Here is the news release, slightly edited:


On 6/06/2010 at approximately 8:48 p.m., the Millburn Police, Millburn Fire Department and Millburn Short Hills Volunteer First Aid Squad (MSHVFAS) responded to 220 Millburn Avenue on a report of a motor vehicle crash. A 2009 Honda Accord had struck the apartment building damaging a building support located in a garage. The garage door and remains of the support caused damage to a car that was parked in the garage. The Fire Department made arrangements for the building to be inspected and residents who were evacuated were later able to return to the building. The driver, Akanksha More, age 32, of Millburn reported turning into the parking lot and when she applied the brake the vehicle reportedly continued accelerating into the building. In addition to the driver, there were three occupants. No one was transported to the hospital and the Honda was towed from the scene. No summonses were issued.
