Passenger Attempted to Assist Driver on the GSP Moments Before Double Fatal Accident; New Details

TLS today learned new details in the double fatal accident, first reported by TLS yesterday afternoon.

NJSP stated “the preliminary investigation revealed that a Jeep Wrangler operated by Christopher Mulholland, 24, of Belmar, NJ, was traveling northbound in the right lane on the Garden State Parkway, in Wall Township, Monmouth County. Jerome Digiovanni, 75, of Toms River, NJ, was operating a Chevrolet Equinox in the right shoulder, stopped partially in the right travel lane of the Garden State Parkway.”

State Police further stated “Pedestrian Ronald Devingo, 57, of Toms River, NJ, was standing directly on the left side of the Equinox.”

TLS has learned that while driving, Jerome Digiovanni suffered a medical episode, and Ronald Devingo, who was sitting in the rear seat, emerged from the vehicle to provide aid to the driver, and was standing at the driver’s door.

That’s when the right side of the Jeep impacted the left side of the Equinox, and overturned. As a result of the impact, both Digiovanni and Devingo sustained fatal injuries. Mulholland sustained minor injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
