7-Car Collision on New Jersey Highway, Man Identified the Victim who Died in the Crash

A 78-year-old local man was named as the victim of the seven-vehicle collision on Route 9 in Freehold Township on Tuesday morning.

At a press conference, a representative for the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office stated that Daniel Kaplan, a resident of Freehold Township, perished in the collision. There were three more injuries.

The office has released very few details about the collision, but the spokesman did state that all of the injured were in separate vehicles and that none of their injuries were life-threatening.

Around 10:30 a.m., the office reported that a crash had occurred on the northbound side close to the intersection with Route 33.

Witnesses reported to the police that a driver did not stop at the red light and banged his car into the vehicles stopped at the red light.

Witnesses are requested to come forward and call Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Brian Boryszewski at 800-533-7443 or Freehold Township police officer Justin Nunno at 732-462-7908.
