Paramus Man Killed in Parkway Crash
The accident occurred while Jeffrey Rosenberg was driving through Toms River Township.
A 27-year-old from Paramus was killed in a car crash on the northbound Garden State Parkway Saturday morning, state police said.
The accident, at mile marker 86.2, occurred about 7 a.m., when the 2003 Toyota Corolla left the road and crashed, killing Jeffrey Rosenberg of Paramus, according to N.J. State Trooper Christopher Kay.
“A preliminary investigation revealed that the driver lost of control of the vehicle and ran off the left side of the roadway, overcorrected (a turn back to the right), spun around clockwise and then left the right side of the roadway. At that point, the car overturned and went into a grass embankment, striking a tree,” said Kay, who said the initial call came in at 7:03 a.m.
Assisting at the scene of the first crash were the Pleasant Plains Fire Department and the Ocean County Medical Examiner's Office, Kay added.
The trooper urged anyone with information on the accident to call the Bass River Station of the New Jersey State Police at (609) 296-1027.
Rosenberg is survived by his parents, Isaac and Maxine, and his sister, Marcia. He attended Paramus public schools from kindergarten through eighth grade, and was part of the Frisch School's class of 2003.
Rosenberg was working toward a master's degree in social work at Montclair State University, hoping to specialize in teaching children with autism.
