Barnegat, NJ – Alice Toriello Killed in T-Bone Collision at Cole Dr and Barnegat Blvd

Barnegat, NJ (February 22, 2022) – A local woman was killed over the weekend in a two-vehicle crash on Barnegat Boulevard, a four-land country road with a grassy median, in Barnegat.  

59-year-old Alice Toriello was pronounced dead at Southern Ocean Medical Center in Stafford from injuries she sustained in an accident at about 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 20th.

An investigation determined that Toriello was making a lefthand turn onto Barnegat Boulevard from Cole Drive when her car and another vehicle heading towards Route 9 on the northbound side of the boulevard collided with one another.

The driver of the other vehicle, 28-year-old Rudolph Schoenberg, a resident of Waretown, sustained non-critical injuries during the accident but refused medical attention at the scene.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mrs. Alice Toriello, at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family in hopes of a full recovery.

Side-Impact Accidents in New Jersey

Barnegat, NJ - Alice Toriello Killed in T-Bone Collision at Cole Dr and Barnegat Blvd

Establishing the negligence or liability of the other driver after a side-impact accident can be contentious because it usually involves a he said/she said situation, with each driver blaming the other for disregarding the applicable traffic control device. 

This is particularly true in un-witnessed collisions; those where the only testimony concerning how the crash happened will come from the vehicle operators themselves. Therefore, questioning the defendant’s credibility is vital to your case. 

An experienced New Jersey side-impact collision attorney will need to conduct a detailed inquiry of the defendant during their deposition in order to dispute any false claims about which driver failed to exercise due care. These questions will include factors like time, distance, speed, traffic control devices, and the intersection itself. 

The connection of all of these elements to one another at different points in time involves a complicated analysis that could demand the retention of expert witnesses, such as accident reconstruction specialists or engineering specialists. These experts might also be retained to review forensic evidence collected at the scene. 

Our side-impact collision attorneys make sure they always work with experts who are at the forefront of their individual fields. The testimonies of these specialists are just one of the multiple reasons our firm has maintained a successful track record in winning car accident cases.
