A car went airborne in Toms River Tuesday, taking out a fire hydrant and other items in its way before landing on another vehicle, police said.
According to police, Pauline English, 51 of Bayville, was traveling north on Oak Ridge Parkway when her 2006 Hyundai Elantra left the roadway to the right at about 3:35 p.m. Her vehicle struck the curb, a fire hydrant, street sign, then traveled across Sun Valley Road. The Hyundai then struck a curb and vaulted into the air, overturned and landed on top of a 2000 Jaguar parked behind the fence on the property at the corner of Sun Valley Road and Oak Ridge Parkway.
English sustained a laceration to the top of her head and was transported to Jersey Shore University Medical Center by Silverton Volunteer EMS ambulance as a precaution, according to police spokeswoman Jillian Messina.
English was cited for careless driving and driving with an expired license. The accident is being investigated by Toms River Traffic Safety David Bartoshek.
