A West Long Branch man has been charged in connection with a Route 36 crash that killed a Long Branch woman Sunday morning, authorities said. NJ.com reports.
Victor Moreno-Lopez, 27, was driving his 2005 Ford F150 King Ranch pick-up truck east on the highway near its intersection with Monmouth Road just after 4 a.m. when he apparently ran a red light and collided with a 2013 Honda Civic, the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement.
Moreno-Lopez allegedly fled the scene, but was apprehended approximately a mile from the site of the crash, authorities said.
The driver of the Civic, 43-year-old Tricia Kurtanick, was taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, where she was pronounced dead at around 9 a.m.
An investigation determined that Moreno-Lopez was driving without a license, according to the prosecutor’s office.
He was charged with second-degree vehicular homicide, second-degree leaving the scene of a fatal motor vehicle crash, third-degree causing the death of another while unlicensed and multiple motor vehicle violations.
Moreno-Lopez is being held at the Monmouth County Correctional Facilty on $500,000 bond with no 10 percent option.
