This Day in History: 1940-02-21
The three-car collision caused by the slippery conditions off the roads took place on Franklin Turnpike. In the narrow stretch of the road in front of Doyle’s Tavern a car driven by Walter Bryllinski of Ramsey skidded into another driven by Albert Mauriello of Suffern. The rear bumper was torn from Brylinski’s car. Richard DeFreese of Hillburn was unable to stop his car and also ran into Brylinski’s vehicle. Since little damage was done and the weather conditions were at fault no charges were pressed. Chief Charles E. Smith investigated.
