LACEY TOWNSHIP, NJ – Police announced that conventional methods of identification have fallen short in identifying the victim of a Lacey Township Friday crash.
According to a news story, the victim is believed to be a Staten Island woman who was killed in a wrong-way crash on County Road 539. She was northbound in a 2000 Lexus and driving well above the 55 mile-per-hour speed limit. At about 6 a.m., she crossed into the southbound lanes of the two-lane road to get around a slower vehicle. Her Lexus collided head-on with a dump truck and immediately caught fire.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and it is thought that she died on impact. The dump truck driver, 37, sustained a minor injury.
Police believe that the victim was a 37-year-old woman from Staten Island but conventional methods of identification have failed to confirm a positive ID. Police are now awaiting lab results that could take up to several months.
