Chief Steve McCarthy wasn’t just in a good mood or having a better-than-usual day on Thursday.
“I’m ecstatic,” Red Bank’s top cop said.
The reason for his cheer was one that he thinks will have a lasting effect on the borough, because it has a problem, he says: in the last five years, McCarthy says more people have died crossing the street than in homicides.
“That’s why one accident is too much,” he said.
