New Jersey accident results in death of Toms River resident

A 22-year-old Toms River woman died in a car accident on the Garden State Parkway recently. She was a passenger in a vehicle driven by a 23-year-old man. That driver and two other passengers were taken to a medical center in Neptune after the crash.

The accident occurred at marker 93.4 on the Garden State Parkway in Brick Township at approximately 4:18 a.m. Investigators say that the car veered off the road and hit a guardrail. It then overturned as it traveled down an embankment. The 22-year-old female passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. Two other passengers, residents of Lakewood, suffered non-life-threatening car accident injuries. The types of injuries suffered by the driver were not in available reports.

The driver of the car, a gray Toyota Scion, is facing charges of causing the death of an individual while operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, driving while intoxicated, and driving with a suspended license, according to police reports. The man is being held at an Orange County jail, and bail has been set at $50,000. According to authorities, additional charges might be forthcoming.

A motorist abandons their duty of care when they operate a vehicle while intoxicated or drive in a reckless manner. If someone is injured or killed as a result of such behavior, the driver may be considered negligent and liable for damages suffered by a victim or a decedent's family. In order to recover compensation, those affected by a car accident might pursue civil claims in court. In this case, the family of the deceased woman and the injured passengers may name the Scion driver as a defendant in personal injury lawsuits.
