Authorities Clearing Accident at Intersection of Routes 70, 88
Multiple lanes closed on both roadways
Authorities were clearing an accident from the intersection of routes 70 and 88 in Brick where a vehicle reportedly overturned Thursday night.
The accident was first reported just after 9:30 p.m. Thursday. By 10 p.m., police had blocked off several lanes of Route 70 and were directing eastbound traffic onto Princeton Avenue. Residual delays remained at several other Route 70 intersections since re-routed traffic was trying to make its way back onto the state highway. The entire intersection was closed.
A tow truck was observed removing a heavily-damaged vehicle from the intersection. Multiple ambulances, including one from Point Pleasant Beach, were responding to the scene.
More information will be reported here as it is released.
