Three people were injured in an accident that took place at 9:07 p.m. Saturday near the entrance to the Brick Target store, police said.

According to Ptl. Gerald Lampiasi, a 2010 Chevrolet Corvette being driven by Anthony Natiello, 57, of Forty Fort, Pa., was traveling west on Cedar Bridge Avenue in the inside lane. A 2002 Ford F-150 pickup, being driven by Richard Getts, 25, of Brick, was traveling east on Cedar Bridge Avenue in the inside lane and had just crossed through the intersection with Wedgewood Drive.

In the area of the entrance/exit of the Target parking lot, the Corvette crossed the center double yellow line and entered into the eastbound inside lane, Lampiasi said. The Corvette crashed into the Ford, after which the Corvette came to final rest in the inside eastbound lane of Cedar Bridge Avenue. The pikcup ran off the road to the right and began to rotate counter clockwise, according to a police report.

The Ford ran into the curb and a sign post, causing it to overturn. The truck came to final rest, upright, on the sidewalk and shoulder of the eastbound side.

Neither the driver nor passenger of the Corvette were injured. Getts suffered an injury to his right arm. His passenger, Dan Pfeill, 34, of Brick, suffered an injury to his nose and right arm and an additional passenger, Kayla Lubiejewski, 21, of Brick, suffered injuries to her head, neck and back, according to police.

A westbound lane on Cedar Bridge Avenue remained open to vehicular traffic, while the eastbound lanes were detoured around the crash for about two hours, Lampiasi said.

Natiello was issued summonses for careless driving and failure to maintain lane. An ongoing investigation is being conducted by Ptl. David Thergesen and Lampiasi, members of the Brick Township Police Department’s Traffic Safety Unit.

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash or who has information pertaining to the crash is being asked to contact Thergesen at (732) 451-2037.
