(TRENTON) – Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-Hudson/Bergen) released the following statement on Wednesday:
“On behalf of the New Jersey General Assembly, I offer my thoughts and prayers to the victims of last night’s tragic crash and their families and friends. I offer my thanks to the emergency responders.
