An accident at the intersection of Route 33 and Colts Neck Road left several people with critical injuries, including a 7-month-old child, on Friday night.
Sgt. Joseph Markulic of the reported that at approximately 11:09 p.m. Desiree Moore, 36, of Farmingdale failed to stop at the stop sign at the intersection while driving north on Colts Neck Road. As a result Moore was struck by James Tachney, 66, of Neptune who was driving east on Route 33.
Markulic said both cars then went into the westbound traffic, striking a car driven by Barbara Sekelsky, 50, of Freehold. Moore's car also hit Edward Navarro, who was standing on the northeast corner of the intersection while riding his bicycle.
Moore had two passengers in the car with her at the time of the crash, the 7-month-old and a 15-year-old girl. The three were taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center where the younger child is currently listed in critical condition. Moore and the teen were treated and released, Markulic said.
Sekelsky is also listed in critical condition. Tachney and his wife, Patricia, were treated for minor injuries. Navarro reportedly suffered only minor injuries and refused treatment.
Markulic said the accident is still under investigation and that alcohol is "not being ruled out." There were no summonses issued as of Saturday afternoon.
Several agencies responded to the crash, including the Adelphia Fire Department, MONOC, the New Jersey Department of Transportation, the New Jersey State Police and the Monmouth County Serious Crash Team.
