   Half Acre Road was temporarily closed Saturday morning following an automobile accident that left four people injured.
   Police said Skillman resident David Rosenfeld, 60, was driving a 2002 Audi east on Half Acre Road across Route 130 at 9:55 a.m. when he was hit by a 2000 Toyota, driven by Peresh Ray, 34, of East Windsor.
   Police said Mr. Ray was heading north on Route 130 when he ran a red light at the Half Acre Road intersection and hit the Audi.
   A passenger of the Toyota, Karilha Kannappan, was trapped for a short time. The Cranbury Fire Department was called to extricate her from the vehicle.
   "Half Acre Road was shut down temporarily as the Fire Department extracted her from the Toyota," said Capt. Jay Hansen. "We were able to get the vehicle off the road quickly and get traffic moving again."
   Ms. Kannappan received a cut to the head and was transported to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick by the Cranbury First Aid Squad. Another passenger in the Toyota, Anandhi Ray, was also taken to Robert Wood Johnson for facial abrasions.
   The passengers of the Audi, Mr. Rosenfeld and his wife, Joan, were transported to the Medical Center at Princeton by the Monroe First Aid Squad. Mr. Rosenfeld suffered from back pain and Ms. Rosenfeld received facial abrasions in the crash.
   "All of the individuals were treated and released," said Capt. Hansen.
   Mr. Ray was issued a summons for disregarding a traffic light and careless driving.
   The accident was investigated by Patrol Officer Ray Wetzel.
