TOMS RIVER, NJ — A car accident left an 83-year-old man dead in Toms River, New Jersey on Sunday, July 13th, 2014, according to a news report from APP Online.
Police have said that they have reason to believe 83-year-old Michael Fecak was killed when the vehicle he was driving collided with a disabled vehicle that was in the right lane of the J Stanley Tunney Bridge around 4:00 Sunday afternoon.
Scene of the Accident
Michael Fecak was killed in the crash. The driver of the disabled vehicle, as well as the passenger were identified as Ashley Bell and Meghann Ray, respectively, and were taken to a nearby hospital with unspecified injuries.
The investigation into the crash is being handled by officials from the New Jersey State Police.
This accident is going to depend heavily on the placement of the disabled vehicle, and how much clearance the victim had to stop. If the car broke down suddently, and was at the crest of a bridge, the driver may not have been able to see the vehicle in time to stop or avoid, either way this accident needs a closer look, and may even need a full reconstruction to figure out who may take responsibility for the accident.
