EDISON, NJ - Additional charges have been filed against an Edison woman after a fatal crash in Highland Park earlier this month.
Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey and Chief Stephen Rizco of the Highland Park Police Department said 20-year-old Edison resident Ashley Gergits has been charged with aggravated manslaughter and possession of a fraudulent document.
Front-seat passenger Jenna Adamousky, 21, was killed in the Feb. 16 accident on Route 27 near River Road, according to the prosecutor's report.
The report states, "Ms. Gergits was driving a 2015 Honda CRV with three passengers and crashed into a 2012 Subaru Legacy driven by a 31-year old male from Central Valley, New York.
"The two other passengers, 20 and 21-year old males, both of Highland Park were taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Medical Center in New Brunswick where they were treated for their injuries and released.
"Gergits was charged by Highland Park police on February 17, 2018 with driving while intoxicated."
According to the prosecutor, while driving south on Route 27, Gergits' vehicle collided with a bridge abutment before bouncing off and crashing into a Subaru Legacy stopped at a red light at the intersection of River Road.
The driver of the Subaru was also taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
