PRINCETON: Winter's first blast
Drivers, road crews deal with slippery stuff
The temperature fell Wednesday morning turning rain into the first snowstorm of the season. Torrents of the wintry white stuff were cascading down over the Princeton region by early afternoon and traffic conditions worsened quickly.
Slick, snow covered roadway conditions were a contributing factor to an accident that occurred in Princeton at 12:59 p.m. when a 1997 Ford Expedition traveling north on Mercer Street near Hale Drive skidded off the roadway and struck a large uprooted tree, according to police.
The driver, Abbie M. Farrow, 56, of Princeton, was extricated through the driver’s side front and rear doors. She suffered upper and lower body injuries and was taken by Princeton First Aid and Rescue to the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro. Her injuries were non-life threatening, according to police.

A Jazzy Collaboration
Fred Hersch will team up with Julian Lage for a concert at McCarter Theatre
PIANIST Fred Hersch has long been considered one of the top jazz standard pianists playing today, as evidenced by his six Grammy nominations and more than three dozen critically acclaimed recordings as a composer, bandleader and theatrical innovator.
Julian Lage is a 25-year-old guitar prodigy who was the subject of an Academy Award-nominated documentary, Jules at Eight, and whose first album Sounding Point, was nominated for a Best Contemporary Jazz album Grammy in 2010.
The two met three years ago when Mr. Hersch was relaxing at a Boston-based Starbucks and Mr. Lage approached him about his music.
