Head-On Crash in South Jersey Kills Woman, Injures Several Others

A woman is dead and several others are badly injured after police say a driver disregarded a stop sign in New Jersey Saturday night and caused a head-on crash.

Police said that 26-year-old Bryan Hansen, of Toms River, was driving a 2015 Honda Civic east on Lakehurst Road approaching Route 70 in Browns Mills about 9:15 p.m. when he failed to stop at a stop sign and continued onto Route 70. Police said Hansen's car then collided head-on with a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora driven by 58-year-old Guy Rizzolo of Wenonah.

Hansen and his front passenger suffered injuries and were taken to Capital Health Medical Center, police said. Rizzolo suffered "significant injuries" and was airlifted to Capital Health, police said.

Nancy Rizzolo, a rear passenger in the Oldsmobile, suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene, according to police. Police said investigators determined she was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The crash remains under investigation, police said. No charges have been announced.
