Driver Ticketed After Crashing Into Car Wash, Beer Store
Little damage to Herbertsville Road business, however
A township man received two summonses after he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a Herbertsville Road business Monday afternoon.
Javier Leyvu-Ponce, 40, was charged with careless driving and being an unlicensed driver after he lost control of a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer SUV while navigating a curve in the road and crashed into Buchanan's, a car wash and drive-through beer store, said Brick Police Sgt. David Bedrosian.
Bedrosian said Leyvu-Ponce was travelling too fast for the conditions just after 5 p.m. Monday and, as he approached a curve in Herbertsville Road near 18th Avenue, lost control of the SUV. The vehicle first hit a curb, then a utility pole before making contact with the building, Bedrosian said.
No one was injured.
The crash caused minor damaged to Buchanan's landscaping and to a side wall of the building, but no structural damage. The business was open as usual on Tuesday.
JCP&L was notified by police about the damaged pole.
