NEPTUNE, NJ -- Four people have been seriously injured in a three-vehicle crash on Route 33 Friday, Neptune officials said.

At least one person was ejected from one of the three cars, police said. The crash happened near the intersection of Union Avenue, police said, and resulted in the closure of Route 33 from Hamilton Avenue to Route 35 for at least two hours.

Photos taken by the police department show one car broken in half from the impact, and pieces of the vehicles strewn about.

Identities of the four injured people and their status were not available Friday afternoon. A Neptune Township Police watch commander said he had no further information as of 4:30 p.m.

Neptune and Neptune City EMS transported the injured to Jersey Shore University Medical Center, police said. The Neptune Office of Emergency Management also responded.



Neptune police reopened Route 33 after a three-car crash that left a tan sedan in pieces.

Several police cruisers blocked off Route 33, locally known as Corlies Avenue, as the mangled remains of a tan sedan's trunk were loaded onto a tow truck. The truck backed up to retrieve the rest of the car.

Two other cars, a white sedan and a silver SUV were towed from the scene of the crash.

It is unclear how many people were involved in the crash and how many injuries there were. Neptune police said information was not immediately available.
