    East Windsor police said a crash on Route 5 Wednesday morning was the result of distracted driving.

    Police said they responded around 12:40 a.m. to reports that a car crashed into a pole in front of Hot Cakes restaurant. A passenger was taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

    The pole had to be stabilized by the utility company but the repairs should not impact the morning commute, police said.

    East Windsor police have increased traffic enforcement on Route 5 after a series of accidents and closures on the road.
