Overturned Jeep on Old Bloomfield Avenue; Driver on cell phone accessing GPS

PARSIPPANY — Ms. Duygu Ercan, 27, was traveling east on Old Bloomfield Avenue when she lost control of her 2004 Jeep Liberty. This incident occurred on Saturday, April 6 at 12:43 p.m.

She states “I veered to the right striking a curb and two utility poles before coming to a halt on its driver’s side. I was utilizing my cellular phone to access a GPS when my phone fell on the floor. I attempted to retrieve the phone and loss control as a result.”

According to Parsippany-Troy Hills Police Officer William Stone, the collision was caused due to driver inattention and distracted driving. There was damage to two utility poles and minor glass damage to two residents.

As of press time, no summons were issued to Ms. Ercan.

She was transported to Morristown Medical Center by Parsippany Emergency Medical Services. The Jeep was towed from the scene by Powder Mill Towing.
