TINTON FALLS, NJ (MONMOUTH)—According to the Public Information Officer at the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office a fatal crash occurred yesterday. Shortly before 7:30 p.m. on Saturday October 9, 2021, members of the Tinton Falls Police Department responded to a report of a two-vehicle motor vehicle accident on Asbury Avenue in the area of the Garden State Parkway overpass. Upon arrival, officers encountered the two vehicles involved in the collision. A GMC pickup truck driven by a 33-year-old male resident of Toms River, and a Toyota Corolla driven by a 40-year-old male resident of Baltimore, Maryland.
Police say that an investigation determined that the pickup truck left the northbound lanes of the Parkway around mile marker 103, then traveled over grass until reaching Asbury Avenue, resulting in the collision.
The driver of the Toyota and a single passenger, a 35-year-old female, address unknown, sustained multiple severe injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the pickup truck was transported to Jersey Shore University Medical Center, where he consented to a blood draw and turned over his cell phone to investigators.
