Toms River woman in serious condition following Whiting car accident
A Toms River woman is in serious but stable condition after veering across Manchester Boulevard near Route 70 in Whiting and colliding with a pick-up truck on Tuesday afternoon around 4:38 pm.
Police say Pamela Fano, 43, was straddling the center part of the road in her Honda Civic before crossing over the double yellow lines and striking the Chevy pick-up truck head on in the northbound lane.
The pickup truck sustained extensive front end damage and the trailer was jackknifed across the roadway blocking both the northbound and southbound lanes.
Fano was trapped in her vehicle as a result of the damage her vehicle sustained in the crash.
She was extricated from her vehicle by members of the Whiting Volunteer Fire Department.
Fano was then air lifted to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune for treatment of a knee injury and a laceration on her head.
The driver of the Chevy, 22-year-old, Tyler Busch of Manchester was trapped inside his truck due to damage sustained in the crash.
He complained of leg pain after the accident but refused medical attention at the scene.
Both drivers were wearing their safety belts at the time of the crash and there were no other occupants in the vehicles.
This crash is being investigated by Patrolman Jesse Hoydis and Sergeant Antonio Ellis of the department’s Traffic Safety Unit.
