According to Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office Charlie Webster, Velva's vehicle was on fire when police arrived on scene.
Two Middletown residents, John Johnson Jr., 50, and Collen Coppa, 52, were in the Chrysler and taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, NJ.com reported.
Records obtained by NJ.com from the Motor Vehicle Commission show Velba's driving privileges had an indefinite suspension and had been suspended four times since 1994. The records indicate Velba also had 19 violations and 43 suspensions, according to NJ.com.
Police determined Velva did run a red light, but the accident investigation remains open. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office at 800-533-7443.
