The accident claimed the lives of 25-year-old Ewing woman Emily Soc and 61-year-old Colleen Roche, of Barnegat.
At around 8 a.m. in Barnegat, on the Garden State Parkway and near the exit for Route 72, Soc was reportedly driving a Toyota southbound, against the flow of traffic in the northbound lanes of the highway.
She crashed head-on with Roche’s Honda CRV, which led the Honda to roll over and catch fire.
Both drivers were killed at the scene.
The accident remains under investigation at this time.
