Four-Car Accident on Kozloski Road in Freehold

Victim says cars went airborne.


Four vehicles were involved in an accident at Kozloski Road and Center Street in Freehold Township shortly before 3 p.m. on Wednesday.

Freehold Township police and the East Freehold Fire Company were at the scene of the accident.

Toms River resident Henry Scharff, 68, said he was sitting at a red light and preparing to make a right turn when he observed two vehicles go airborne.

“I saw an orange and black thing coming at me. The path of destruction went right over the top of my car,” he said.

Two of the vehicles flew from the intersection onto the grass of the parking lot at the nearby and Engineering building.

Scharff said he was the only person from the four-car accident to walk away unharmed.

“There were people lying on the ground bleeding. You can tell from the damage they are very hurt. I could have been killed," he said.

Traffic was backed up along Kozloski Road as authorities investigated the accident. At least three people required medical attention, including one victim who was transported to Jersey Shore University Medical Center. The condition of those injured was not immediately available.

The vehicles involved in the crash included Scharff's gray Honda Accord, a black Honda Accord, a black Saturn Vue, and an orange Hummer H3.

This is a developing storyline. Freehold Patch will have more information as it becomes available.

So you are saying who cares if the innicent and ones who drive safe a responsible, as long as the precious child is saved?? Why do parents always think only their child is the one to protect! maybe if the parents make sure the child learns responisblility before letting them drive. My parents made sure I never drove until they were sure I did follow the rules of the road. and if there were three other peoples children in the other cars, who is right then, they would all be children, and we must save them all. if some irresponible driver kills me, I am going to haunt like you will not believe.

Lupe: Where do you get off saying previous generations were 10x worse? These kind of accidents happen with a much higher frequency today then back in the 50's, 60's, 70's, & 80's. Take your blinders off.

Where I come from, we call this a wreck. All accidents are wrecks, many wrecks are not accidents.

I remember never getting out when school let out b/c I was involved in activities. I think those kinds of things saved me from getting into trouble.
