Barnegat Mom Hospitalized after 3-Vehicle Crash in Stafford

A 22-year-old Barnegat mother barely survives going airborne from her SUV during a crash with a senior transport bus and a third vehicle in Stafford this morning.

Alyssa Jimenez was airlifted to Atlantic City Trauma Center with multiple injuries, according to information from Stafford Police.

Police say Jimenez and her year-old daughter were headed north in their Suzuki on Route 9 at about 8:30 this morning. It crossed the double lines and rammed a Seacrest Village Nursing Home bus that had a driver and five passengers aboard. The impact sent the bus hurtling into a Dodge Ram driven by Jason Moscatello, 40, of West Creek, police said.

The bus driver, Robert Lafferty, 67, of Little Egg Harbor, claimed to be unhurt but a rider was brought to Southern Ocean Medical Center for treatment of a minor leg wound, police said.

Moscatello, police said, was also taken to SOCH for treatment of hand and neck injuries and the toddler was examined at SOCH and released to a family member. All three vehicles are said to have sustained major damage.

The crash caused a two-hour detour on Route 9 and is stil under investigation. Police urge witnesses to contact Stafford Patrolman Justin Pascale, 609-597-1189, extension 8436.
