Perth Amboy police officer dies in Route 1 car crash

If you listened to the traffic reports this morning, you likely heard about the accident on Route 1 in Woodbridge involving a Perth Amboy police car. The Star-Ledger is now reporting one officer died and another is being treated for serious injuries. The officer who died is Thomas Raji, 31. Mr. Raji was married to another Perth Amboy police officer, who at present is pregnant with the couple's child.

The accident happened at the intersection of Route 1 and Green Street. A car traveling west on Green plowed into the police car, which was traveling south on Route 1. Reports say it's not immediately clear whether the police or the other car involved had right of way.

In an incredible twist of fate, the driver of the second car, 23-year-old Sean McGuirk, of Colonia, is brother to a Woodbridge police officer.
