Erin Quinn, the Wayne teenager who was killed
in a car crash on Route 80 last month, may have been cut off by a van
before she lost control of her Saturn, NJ.com reported.
Quinn, 18, was on Route 80 Westbound Aug. 15 when her 2001 Saturn left the roadway near mile-marker 47 in Parsippany crashing into a tree, State Police spokesman Sgt. Brian Polite said last month. She was a member of the Wayne Valley High School Class of 2013. She was reportedly on her way to college when the accident occurred.
State Police spokesman Lt. Stephen Jones told the website that “a nonspecific white van” may have cut Quinn’s vehicle off before she lost control of her vehicle; the van did not make contact with Quinn’s vehicle, Jones said.
Jones could not be reached for additional comment.
State police are still investigating the crash.
“Erin is such a beautiful girl and she was very witty,” the Napolitano family said on Quinn’s obituary webpage.
Quinn is survived by her parents, Kathleen Quinn, of New Port Richie, Fla.; and Barry Quinn and his wife, Lise, of Wayne; her brothers Brian Quinn, and Ian Smith; her step-brothers, Ben and Noah Kautz, and grandparents, Barry Quinn Sr. and Dolores Quinn, of Woodland Park; and the late Bob and Elizabeth Sager.
The family has asked that donations be made St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, P.O. Box 1000, Dept. 142, Memphis, TN, 38148-0142.
