MANCHESTER – A 30-year-old Ocean Township woman was arrested for a hit-and-run accident.
Stephanie Smith was charged with eluding police, and also written summonses for driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, failure to maintain a lane, leaving the scene of an accident and failure to report an accident.
She’s being lodged at the Ocean County Jail.
