When officers arrived on the scene they found one of the vehicles had flipped over and landed back on its wheels and the other vehicle had left the roadway, striking a tree.
The Allenhurst First Aid Squad and Fire Department were immediately dispatched, with the Deal First Aid squad also responding for mutual aid.
The Allenhurst First Aid Squad transported four people to Monmouth Medical Center, with non life-threatening injuries. The Deal First Aid Squad also transported one patient to Monmouth Medical Center, with non life-threatening injuries.
The officers investigation found one of the drivers had entered the intersection without stopping at the stop sign.
He was issued a summons for failure to stop, with a pending court date.
“Police want to remind all motorists to wear your seatbelt at all times, regardless of how long the ride in the vehicle is. None of us know when, where or how a crash might occur and the seatbelt is one of the best protections one can use to survive any car crash,” said Chief Michael Schneider.
