Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer announced that at approximately 10:00 p.m. on Sunday night, the Toms River Township Police were notified that a pedestrian had been struck by a marked Toms River Township Police vehicle in the area of Fischer Boulevard and Adams Avenue.

An investigation conducted by the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Vehicular Homicide Unit and Ocean County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigation Unit, has determined that William Carberry, 42, of Toms River, was attempting to cross Fischer Boulevard when he was struck by a Toms River Township Police vehicle that was headed northbound on Fischer Boulevard.

Carberry was originally transported to Community Medical Center in Toms River, but then flown to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune for treatment of his injuries. Carberry is now listed in stable condition.

“Initial evidence indicates that Mr. Carberry was wearing dark clothing, appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and was crossing outside the designated crosswalk at the time he was struck,” Prosecutor Billhimer stated.

“This incident is currently under investigation by the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Vehicular Homicide Unit and Ocean County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigation Unit” Prosecutor Billhimer concluded.
