NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—Easton Avenue is usually a vibrant area on the weekends, especially when Rutgers is in session.
But last weekend, it became a dangerous place as a 20-year-old city resident was shot near the intersection with Easton Avenue. Police said the victim was "extremely uncooperative," according to New Brunswick's Patch.com.
The next night a driver managed to flip a car completely over just around the corner on Hamilton Street.
No one was injured and the driver did not hit anything.
