MANCHESTER – Police are investigating a crash that caused the death of a Manchester woman during the early hours of March 5. The single vehicle crash occurred near Central Dr. and Manor Ct. in the Pine Acres Manor section of town, at approximately 2 a.m.

Judith M. Oliveri, 67, was found unresponsive by officers and later pronounced dead at the scene.

Oliveri was traveling west on Central Dr. in a silver 2014 Chevrolet Spark when she veered off the left side of the roadway near the Manor Ct. intersection. The Chevrolet collided with a tree and a road sign before colliding head-on into a 2002 Dodge Ram pick-up that was parked in the street.

The Chevrolet sustained extensive damage to the front end during the crash and both of the airbags were deployed.

It was found that Oliveri was not wearing her seatbelt during the incident and it is believed that she had suffered a medical episode, possibly causing the accident.

Assisting at the scene were EMTs from Quality Medical Transport, paramedics from MONOC, representatives from the Ocean County Medical Examiner’s Office, and detectives from the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) Unit.

The crash is being investigated by Patrolman Ian Bole of the department’s Traffic Safety Unit.
