Update: Ford Truck Strikes Utility Pole On Kettle Creek Road

Vehicle was traveling eastbound when it left the roadway.

A 2002 Ford truck collided with a utility pole just after 11:30 on Saturday night at Kettle Creek Road and Blue Sea Lane in Toms River.

Arthur Carballo, 35, of Jackson was eastbound on Kettle Creek Road when the vehicle left the road and struck a utility pole at Blue Sea Lane, Police Chief Michael Mastronardy said in a prepared news release. 

After being extricated from the vehicle by the Silverton Fire Company Carballo was transported to Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune, by Toms River Police EMS.  

Kettle Creek Road was closed for about an hour then traffic lanes were alternated while utility companies replaced the pole that was struck. 

Just prior to the accident, police received a call concerning the vehicle involved in the accident driving erratically on Hinds Road near Church Road, Mastronardy said. 

Sergeant Michael Miller and Traffic Safety Officer Steven Schwartz are investigating the accident.

Kettle Creek is one of the most dangerous residential roads in the country. There is limited side walk...so children must walk in the street and the Toms RIver set the speed at 35 MPH (soeveryone does 45ish) Can't wait to move out of this area..people dying left and right.
