EDISON, NJ (MIDDLESEX)–Middlesex County Prosecutor Yolanda Ciccone and Chief Thomas Bryan of the Edison Police Department announced today that a fatal crash is under investigation.
On January 20, 2022, at 10:25 P.M., authorities responded to the southbound lane of Route 1 in the area of the Fox Road following the report of a crash. Upon their arrival, authorities located Diana Somarriba, 18, of South Brunswick and two teenage males who were the occupants of a vehicle, which had struck a vacant building. Somarriba was transported to a nearby hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
The investigation is active and continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Captain Dominic Masi of the Edison Police Department at (732) 248-7400 or Detective Jonathan Berman of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-4328.
Diana Somarriba was the most generous, goofy and amazing person. She has always made people laugh no matter what mood she was in. She was in the progress of joining the army and finally getting her goals to an end. Unfortunately she has been in a car accident and passed away early in the morning of January 21, 2022. We are absolutely devastated by Diana’s passing and are struggling to find the funds to cover the cost of the service. Please consider donating if you are able to do so. We are so very grateful for every donation during this difficult time.
