According to authorities, the fatal motor vehicle accident happened just before 7:00 p.m. The victim was behind the wheel of a 2012 Honda and driving on Mount Hope Avenue, near the local TD Bank, when she was involved in a car accident. The other vehicle in the car crash was a 2014 Mercedes Benz.
Someone notified the Rockaway Township Police Department, which sent patrol cops to the scene of the car accident.
When Rockaway police officers arrived at the scene of the accident, they saw that the victim’s vehicle had overturned on its side. The driver was trapped underneath the vehicle. Once emergency responders freed the victim, she was already deceased.
The victim was a 31-year-old woman who lived in Mount Tabor, an unincorporated community within Parsippany-Troy Hills, New Jersey. She worked as a secretary to the chief of the Morristown Fire Department.
Investigators are looking into the crash. It is not believed that the driver of the other car, a 51-year-old male who lives in Denville, was drunk or driving recklessly at the time of the accident.
