  TOMS RIVER – A two-vehicle collision caused a car to flip over and sent several to the hospital for treatment in Toms River last week, according to police.

  On Dec. 12, at approximately 8:27 p.m., police responded to the intersection of Yellowbank Road and Fischer Blvd for a motor vehicle accident. Further investigation discovered that 22-year old Marta Dziak of Flushing, NY was travelling northbound on Fischer Boulevard when the accident occurred. As Dziak approached the light at Yellowbank Road, 55-year old David Clayton of Toms River made a left-hand turn in front of her, leading to the crash.

  Jillian Messina of the Toms River Police Department told Jersey Shore Online that two of the five passengers in Clayton’s vehicle were assisted out by EMS and firefighters and transported to Community Medical Center for their injuries.

 The preliminary investigation revealed that Dziak was driving under the influence of alcohol, said Messina. Dziak was placed under arrest and issued a Motor Vehicle Summons for Driving While Intoxicated, Reckless Driving, and An Open Bottle of Alcohol in a Motor Vehicle.
