LAWRENCE (Mercer) — A sedan went off Route 206 and into the side of a building displacing several residents of a second-floor apartment Wednesday afternoon.
A 2018 Mazda sedan went off the southbound side of the two-lane road and into an alley between a Starbucks and Chambers Walk Cafe and Catering before hitting a staircase that led to the apartments, according to Lawrence Police Chief Christopher Longo.
The building is located across from The Lawrenceville School which is closed for its holiday break.
The driver of the Mazda, a 72-year-old Bucks County man, was unconscious and trapped when first responders arrived. He was taken to Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton. Longo did not know the extent of the man's injuries. He was the only person in the car.
Looking for witnesses to the crash
The Lawrence Township Building Inspector is checking damage to the building. The cafe late Wednesday afternoon on its Facebook page wrote that they are "safe and open."
Longo said an investigation is ongoing and asked witnesses to the crash to call the department at 609-896-1111.
Route 206 was closed in both directions through the area of the crash for a time causing delays on Grant Avenue, Cold Soil Road and Franklin Corner Road by drivers trying to avoid the closure.

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
