Officers from the Toms River Police Department continue to investigate two early morning Wednesday crashes after which the drivers abandoned their vehicles.
The first occurred at 2 a.m. on Parkway Drive when a 2003 Dodge truck struck a tree and the driver left the scene, said Chief of Police Michael Mastronardy. Officer Anthony Scali is investigating the crash and attempting to identify the driver.
Police then responded to a crash at 2:30 a.m. on New Hampshire Avenue where a northbound vehicle crossed the southbound lanes and struck a utility pole near Hickory Street, the chief said.
"The driver walked away prior to police arrival," Mastronardy said. "Officer Adam Worth investigated the accident and identified the driver to be family member of the registered owner. Numerous charges are pending."
Police are investigating a burglary that occurred "over the last few days" at Coty Marine on Fischer Boulevard during which a rear door was forced open and $100 cash and a digital camera were removed, the chief said.
