TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) — Police say a 77-year-old woman has been killed and her husband has been seriously injured after their car collided with a pickup truck in Toms River.
Police Chief Michael Mastronardy tells The Star-Ledger the accident happened around 5:15 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Route 70. He says the woman, a passenger in her husband’s vehicle, was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.
