BELMAR, N.J. (AP) — A woman was killed and her boyfriend was injured when their car and another vehicle collided on a central New Jersey bridge.
Monmouth County authorities tell the Asbury Park Press that 26-year-old Tiffany Soto of Howell died in the crash, which happened around 2 a.m. Sunday on Route 35 in Belmar.
Soto was in a car driven by her boyfriend, Edgar Martinez, who suffered a head injury. The two people in the other vehicle were not injured.
The impact caused Martinez’s vehicle to hit a curb, overturn and strike a pole. It then went airborne into a marina parking lot, where it hit a pickup truck.
During this time, Soto was ejected and briefly ended up in the water. She was pronounced dead at a hospital a short time later.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
