JACKSON, N.J. - Three young women died Tuesday of injuries suffered in a two-car collision Monday afternoon in this Ocean County community, authorities said.
Julie Tracy, 17, Kristen OHara, 19, and Alexandra Tenneriello, 19, all of Jackson, were passengers in a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer driven by Nicole Greenberg, 17, of Jackson, said Capt. Michael Mohel of the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office.
Tenneriello was pronounced dead at 2:40 a.m. Tuesday at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune where she was taken following the crash. OHara and Tracy died Tuesday afternoon at the Neptune hospital, Mohel said.
Greenberg was treated and released from CentraState Medical Center in Freehold Township.
The Mitsubishi collided with a 20 Chevrolet Cavalier driven by Natercia Clanton, 33, of Waretown. Clanton was treated and released from CentraState, officials said. Her mother, Rosa Moco, and her sister, Anabela Moco, 31, both of Jackson, who were passengers in Clanton's car, also were hurt.
The coillision happened around 4:30 p.m. at a curve in the road shortly after a heavy rainstorm, said Jackson police Sgt. Brian Geoghegan.
