A 26-year-old Bucks County man was driving drunk and in the wrong direction Thanksgiving Day when he struck a minivan head-on on the New Jersey Turnpike, sending a couple and their two children to the hospital, authorities said.

A southbound Nissan Versa driven by Michael Forman, of Sellersville, hit the Edison family’s Honda Odyssey in the Turnpike’s northbound lanes in Gloucester County’s Woolrich Township, around 9:45 p.m., they said.

The Versa then slammed into the concrete median, the NJSP said.

The 36-year-old mother and two of the children, 6 and 11, were seriously injured, State Police said, adding that the father and an 8-year-old child sustained minor injuries.

The wrong-way driver was seriously injured, as well, they said. He was charged with driving drunk and faces numerous moving violations

The victims were taken to the hospital aboard four medical choppers.

State Police closed all but one northbound lane in the area of Exit 2, which is 20 or so miles north of the Delaware Memorial Bridge, for nearly three hours.
