Toms River firefighters had to extricate a Seaside Park man from a vehicle following a three-vehicle accident that occurred Tuesday.

According to Toms River police spokesman Ralph Stocco, police, EMS and fire units responded to a three vehicle crash at the intersection of Route 37 and Coolidge Avenue at about 7:10 a.m. Tuesday.

Kim Douglas, 34 of Toms River, was traveling West on Route 37 in a 2013 Dodge Caravan when she drove into the back of another vehicle that was stopped at a red traffic signal, Stocco said. Douglas struck a 2015 Toyota Corolla driven by Michael Carlo, 32, of Seaside Park. Carlo’s vehicle was then pushed forward into a 2015 Nissan Rouge that was being operated by 32-year-old Edward Brick, from Bick Township.
