An 18-year-old is accused of causing a crash in a road rage incident that killed another man, New Jersey prosecutors said.
Avrohom Pam, 18, of Lakewood, New Jersey, was charged with vehicular homicide on June 12. He was involved in a June 11 crash where Sean Avon, 26, of Brick Township, died, according to the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office.
Investigators say Pam was driving a 2021 Ford Van in the righthand lane on Lanes Mills Road, when he struck a 2019 Honda CRV driven by John Arendt, Jr., 73, of Brick Township.
The force of the collision reportedly propelled Arendt's vehicle into the northbound lane, where it struck Avon's 2012 Ford Mustang head-on, according to the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office.
Investigators say an argument between Pam and Arendt happened before the crash.
Avon reportedly suffered serious injuries as a result of the crash and was transported to Ocean Medical Center in Brick Township. He later died while at the hospital, prosecutors said.
Arendt was transported to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune for treatment of his injuries. He is listed in stable condition as of June 12, according to the prosecutor's office.
Pam remained on the scene of the wreck and was not hurt, according to prosecutors.
Pam was transported to Ocean Medical Center to have his blood drawn as part of the police investigation, according to prosecutors. He was then taken into custody and is being held at the Ocean County Jail pending a detention hearing.
