Have You Seen This Man? Police Need Your Help
The Ocean County Prosecutors Office is seeking the public's help in locating a Toms River man involved in a serious collision with a motorcyclist last week.
Officials say 36-year-old Gary Miller gave false identification to police during the June 2nd crash on Whitesville Road. The accident leaves the biker and a passenger in critical condition at the Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune.
The Ocean County Prosecutor's Office says Miller, who was traveling northbound on Whitesville Rd in a Chevy Astrovan, attempted to make an abrupt U-turn in front of the motorcyclist. 29-year-old Eugene Lewis Jr. of Green Brook, who was operating a 2012 Harley Davidson motorcycle with passenger 34-year-old Kristen Letwenski of Brick, was unable to stop in time and collided into Miller and were ejected. Both were subsequently airlifted to Jersey Shore University Trauma Center in Neptune, NJ. As of June 11, both remain in critical condition.
During questioning, Police say Miller provided the investigating officer with a false identity using the name and personal identification of his half-brother. Police determined his true identity at Jackson Police Headquarters and filed numerous criminal complaints including, Obstruction, Unsworn Falsification, False Police Report, Hindering Apprehension, and Two Counts of Causing Serious Injury While Suspended.
Anyone with information as to his whereabouts is asked to contact Detective David Margentino Jr., of the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office, Vehicular Homicide Unit at (732) 929-2027 ext. 2946 or Patrolman Joe Candino, of the Jackson Police Department, Traffic Safety Unit at (732) 928-1111.
