Arrest followed accident at gas station

Stafford police have arrested and charged a 25-year-old Manahawkin woman of driving under the influence, following a collision at the Sunoco gas station.

Jennifer L. Terefenko allegedly rear-ended a car that was being fueled. Both the car, operated by John P. Navarro, 45, of Manahawkin, and the 1999 Ford truck that Terefenko was driving sustained minor damage, police said. No injuries were reported.

According to police, an investigation concluded Terefenko was operating her motor vehicle while under the influence. Terefenko also had an outstanding warrant out of Bass River, NJ, which was issued by State Police. 
Terefenko was processed then released to a family member after being issued numerous motor vehicle summons.
