TINTON FALLS — State Police are investigating a crash in which a vehicle flipped over at the Garden State Parkway Asbury Park toll plaza this morning.
The driver of the overturned vehicle and the passenger of another vehicle involved in the accident are receiving treatment at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune.
State Police Trooper Mike Kuziemski of the Holmdel State Police Barracks said the accident happened at 10:34 a.m. Saturday.
“We had a report of an erratic driver,’’ Kuziemski said. He said that the female driver drove at a high rate of speed into the exact-change lane, hitting another vehicle.
“Her vehicle overturned and the vehicle she struck sustained minor damage,” Kuziemski said. “A passenger in the car she struck was taken to the hospital. It may have involved some glass on her hands.”
Kuziemski said the driver was not carrying identification and a blood test was being taken to determine if she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident. The identity of the driver and passenger in the car she hit were not available by police as of 1:30 p.m. There were no passengers in the woman’s vehicle, according to Kuziemski.
A passing motorist who was not involved in the accident, Lyndsay Sofield of Toms River, said: “I was driving to work as it happened. I looked down to get my change for the toll and heard a loud bang. I looked up and saw the car upside down, blocking the Asbury Park toll lane headed north. It was pretty shocking to see the car on its roof.”
Kuziemski said that Tinton Falls EMS and fire company also responded to the scene of the accident.
