Manahawkin Family Injured in Vermont Car Accident
A Manahawkin family of five was hospitalized after being hit by a car driving through Vermont last weekend.
Vermont State Police say 20-year-old Jenna Latterreur of Essex, VT, was driving a 2013 BMW on Vermont Route 22-A in West Haven on Sunday, July 14, around 10AM when she left her lane of travel and struck a Toyota sienna, partially head on, driven by 38-year-old Greg Smith of Manahawkin.
Smith was extracted from the vehicle and suffered serious injuries. The front passenger, 41-year-old Holly Smith, was hospitalized for serious injuries. 9-year-old Garron, 6-year-old Reid, and 11-year-old Abby were transported to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Jenna Latterreur was transported to Medical Center in New York for non-life threatening injuries.
At this time police don't believe that drugs or alcohol were a factor in the collision.
Latterreur was issued a citation to appear in Vermont Superior Court, Rutland Criminal Division on November 4, 2019, after being charged criminally for Gross Negligent Operation and Reckless Endangerment.
The Vermont State Police were notified the Smith family is reported to be stable at the hospital.
