On Tuesday February 24, 2015, at approximately 10:19 a.m., a green 2000 Chrysler Town and Country was traveling east through the north parking lot of the Wawa in Whiting and made a left turn, colliding with a green 2000 Mack Pinto Brothers garbage truck. That truck then collided with a tan 2000 Ocean County Mack recycling tractor trailer which was parked in a designated parking space at the time of the collision.
The driver of the 2000 Chrysler, 80 year old Remedios Brown, was not injured in the collision. The operator of the green 2000 Mack garbage truck, 45 year old James L. Rupinski, also was not injured in the collision. Grone’s Towing responded to the scene to separate the 2000 Chrysler from the garbage truck. The crash remains under investigation by Patrolman Ian Bole from the Manchester Township Traffic Safety Bureau.
