Police: Cell Phone Glance Results in Crash

Man taken to the hospital with injuries

A township man was injured in a Thursday crash that he said was caused by glancing at his cell phone. 

Sixto Colon III was operating a 2010 Hyundai at 11 p.m. when he struck a tree after turning from Maimone Street on to his driveway, said Chief of Police Michael Mastronardy. 

"Mr. Colon reported to Officer Sean Smith that he glanced down to look at his cell phone and struck a tree on the north side of his driveway," the chief said. 

Colon was transported to the Jersey Shore University Medical Center by the Toms River First Aid Squad with leg, back and head injuries, according to Mastronardy.
