FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, N.J. — In a story Sept. 6 about a car that smashed into an office in New Jersey, The Associated Press reported erroneously on what happened to the driver before the crash. Prosecutors say the driver was stabbed, not shot.
The AP also misstated the location of the crash. It was in Franklin Township, Somerset County, not in North Brunswick.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Car smashes into doctor’s office after driver fatally stabbed
Police say they’re searching for the person who fatally stabbed a driver in New Jersey, causing the car to smash through a fence and slam into a doctor’s office
