TOMS RIVER – A Toms River man was today arrested and charged with the death of an 82-year-old woman.

Daniel Reed, 34, was charged with vehicular homicide in the death of Jean Divona on June 30, 2018.

Reed, driving his 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe southbound on New Hampshire Boulevard, failed to maintain his lane and struck a 2005 Toyota Camry driven by Divona. She was taken to Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus in Lakewood, where she died from injuries.

Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer said that Reed was taken to Community Medical Center in Toms River, where he was administered a blood test that showed he was impaired by fentanyl and morphine at the time of the crash.

He was arrested by Toms River Detectives at his township home this morning. He is being held at Ocean County Jail.
