HOLMDEL, N.J. - A fatal accident was reported approximately Saturday morning on Garden State Pkwy Southbound near mile marker 110.9.
According to reports at nj.com, New Jersey State Police Trooper Alejandro Goez said Lindsey Aparicio, 33, of Bound Brook, was traveling southbound on the highway near mile marker 110.9 when she crashed at 7:16 a.m.
Aparicio, who was driving a 2001 Ford F150, was in the local lanes when she veered off the road, across the grass median and into the express lanes, Goez said.
"The pickup overturned, continued across the express lane and struck a guardrail," he said.
The victim was driving a Ford pickup that overturned at mile marker 110.9 southbound. Widespread reports of black ice had speed restrictions in place for the area. It is unknown if this was a factor.
According to The Weather Channel, the most basic definition of black ice is a thin coat of highly transparent ice. The reason it is transparent is because it blends in with road pavements since it is so thin, making it nearly impossible to see. It's called black ice since it looks black, like the color of the road pavement it forms on.
