Brick Township Fatal Crash Survivor Charged With Death By Auto

The driver who managed to stay alive after a two-car crash in Brick Township last month is now charged in the other driver’s death.

Deborah Tadych, 60, of the township, was arrested and charged with death by auto late today after her release from Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, where she convalesced from the fractured hip she sustained in the December 18th crash.

Brick PD Sergeant David Bedrosian says that the charge arrives at the end of a year in which road deaths in the township totalled nine.

Investigators at the scene determined that Tadych’s 2008 Hyundai Sonata crossed a double-yellow line in the middle of Herbertsville Road just after 6:30 PM, into the path of a 1997 Mercury driven by 65-year-old Susan Steeper, also of Brick Township. Steeper died as a result of internal injuries.

Local police and members of the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Vehicular Homicide unit cite aggravating factors stemming from an ongoing probe of the incident that led to the charge against Tadych. She was lodged in the Ocean County Jail in Toms River after Superior Court Judge Francis Hodgson set bail at $50,000 with no 10-percent option.
