Hawthorne, NJ – Update: Carmen Traverso Identified as Victim of Deadly Rt 208 Crash

Hawthorne, NJ (September 07, 2022) – A woman died at the scene of a one-car crash on Route 208 in Hawthorne on Monday, September, 5th. 

According to a local source, 78-year-old Carmen Traverso and her passenger, both residents of Dover, were traveling southbound on Route 208 at about 12:00 p.m. when her 2004 Toyota Camry left the roadway, traveled up an embankment, and crashed in between two trees near the exits for Goffle Road and Grandview Avenue. 

Upon their arrival, first responders extricated both victims from the wrecked vehicle. 

Traverso was pronounced at the scene. Her 80-year-old passenger was transported to St. Joseph’s University Medical Center in unknown condition.

It remains unclear what caused the vehicle to leave the road.  

Police shut down the roadway’s southbound lanes for several hours. The incident is still under investigation.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mrs. Carmen Traverso, at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family in hopes of a full recovery.
