Police Identify Lacey Woman Killed In Waretown Accident

A Lanoka Harbor woman was killed in an accident Tuesday at the intersection of Main Street and Bryant Road in Waretown, a spokesman for the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office said.

Monica Stroud, 59, Maple Street, Lanoka Harbor, was taken to Community Medical Center in Toms River after the 6:02 p.m. accident on Tuesday. She later died of her injuries. Police withheld her name until relatives could be notified.

Ocean Township police are still looking for witnesses to the two-car accident.

The first vehicle, a 2001 Dodge Ram, was traveling southbound on Main Street approaching the intersection.

Stroud was heading eastbound on Bryant Road in her 2005 Dodge Neon when the two vehicles collided as they approached the intersection, police said.

The accident is under investigation by Patrolman Steve Mandarine of the Department's Traffic Safety Bureau and Detective Andrew Risden of the Department's Detective Bureau.

Any witnesses to the accident are being asked to contact investigators at (609) 693-4007.

Rest in peace. This isn't the first time a fatal accident has occurred at this intersection. People fly down Main Street.

Bryant has the stop sign, most accidents that have occurred there were do to failure to stop and/or look both ways. shame

Diane, yes, people speed down Main St all the time but this time it was not the person who was driving down Main St. The other person, who was on Bryant, ran the stop sign/blinking red light. It was really horrible weather that night, pouring rain. She was in unfamiliar territory and most likely never saw the stop sign and flashing red light. I just wanted to clear the other diver of any wrongdoing.
