A two-car accident near the Middletown-Holmdel border claimed the lives of a Middletown man and his six-year-old son Sunday morning, according to media reports.
George DiCostanzo, 38, was pronounced dead on the scene of the crash, which occurred shortly after 10 a.m., according to a report by NJ.com, the news site of the Star-Ledger.
DiCostanzo’s son, Christopher, was pronounced dead at 11:27 a.m. at Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank.
DiCostanzo’s four-year-old daughter, Pearl, was not seriously injured, which occurred in the vicinity of Van Schoick and Galloping Hill roads, according to the report. She was transported to Jersey Shore Medical Center in Neptune.
Holmdel police were investigating the cause of the accident, in which the DiCostanzo’s blue Subaru wagon collided with a Jeeep Cherokee driven by John McCormack, 44, of Middletown.
McCormack and his passenger, Stephanie Pavlicek, suffered non-life-threatening injuries, “though hers were considered serious,” the Sledger reports. They were also taken to the hospital in Neptune.
DiCostanzo called his two children “the joys of my life” on his Facebook page.
