It looks, at first glance, like a pretty bad wreck.
The aftermath of what appears to be a two-car smashup at a key Red Bank intersection is staged, involving pre-damaged cars and an amply-indulged photo crew, complete with a custom bus, directors’ chairs, and catering.
People with the crew were mum about their project, except to say that they’re doing a photo shoot for Liberty Mutual insurance, and that they expected to be on scene most of the day.
“We have a lot of variations to shoot, in a lot of lighting conditions,” said a guy named Brian, who declined to give redbankgreen his last name but said he was in charge.
Real police were on the scene directing real traffic through the setup.
