Two Lakewood residents were killed in less than 24 hours on Township roads, according to The Lakewood Scoop. Lakewood police said relatives and friends of 41-year-old Chandra Martin severely beat the driver of a Sport Utility Driver who struck her near her home Saturday night as she crossed Route 88 near Linden Avenue. Martin suffered head trauma and other injuries and died at 7:45 p.m. at Ocean Medical Center in Brick, the Asbury Park Press reported.

26-year-old Juan Gregorio-Chacon of Lakewood had to be flown to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune for injuries he suffered during the beating.

Route 88 was closed between New Hampshire and Clover Street for more than 5 hours.

The crash remains under investigation.

The Lakewood Scoop reported David Rudy Gaines was a long-time resident who worked as a contractor for the Lakewood Inspections Department.
