From the Press:
summonses were issued Wednesday, but a preliminary investigation
indicates speed appears to have been a factor.

driving a 2006 Chrysler 300 eastbound on Newman Springs Road when he
lost control of the car and struck a small curb that divides the two
sides of the road near Hance Avenue, police said.
The Chrysler crossed into the westbound lanes, where it collided with a
1997 Toyota Avalon driven by Dimicelli and a 2006 Honda, driven by Amy
Honig, 37, of the Lincroft section of Middletown, said Trevena. Then the Chrysler overturned and slid back into the eastbound lane, he said.
Honig was taken to Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank and the boy was
taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune.
