Accident occurred between Freehold driver and Wall woman hours after power to the traffic light was turned on.
A Wall Township woman was killed Saturday afternoon in a collision at the intersection of Route 34 and Belmar Boulevard, police said.
The collision occurred around 1 p.m. when Andre Volk, 44, of Freehold, was driving northbound on Route 34 in a 2005 Ford F-250 pick-up, and hit a 2000 Mercedes Benz driven by Gina M. Nobes, 55, of Wall, police said.
Nobes was ejected from the vehicle during collision. She was transported to Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune Township, where she was pronounced dead.
