Ship Bottom police were investigating details of an accident at Fourth Street and Central Avenue last night, after an SUV crashed into a local dental office.
Police at the scene said the driver of a black SUV, Vincent A. Brago, 23, of Middletown, NY, and his passenger, a 22-year-old girl who was not immediately identified, failed to yield the right away to a car driven by Melissa E. Carroll, 19, of Randolph, NJ. Brago's vehicle, which swerved into the front step area of the dental office, was headed west on Fourth and Carroll's vehicle was headed southbound on Central Avenue.
A woman at the scene who identified herself as Brago's mother said neither Brago nor his passenger, whom she identified as his girlfriend, were injured in the accident.
A witness a block away from the crash said he could hear the crash around 5:30 p.m. Numerous local emergency personnel responded, including Ship Bottom Police, Surf City Rescue and the Ship Bottom Fire Department.
