A 1997 Toyota Camry driven  by Edward P. Beck, 62, of Whiting went off Schoolhouse Road at a curve, brought down a utility pole and ran into a pine tree, bringing the tree onto the car.

The Whiting Volunteer Fire Company extricated Beck and his dog from the vehicle; Beck was taken by medical helicopter to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune while the dog was taken to the Ocean County Animal Shelter pending return to a family member.

This incident is the latest in a number of serious accidents in Manchester over the past few months according to police, prompting them to step up their traffic enforcement efforts.They say traffic enforcement plays an important role in helping to decrease traffic accidents.
Manchester Police encourage drivers to give their full attention to the road while driving and to not use electronic devices or to text and talk on the phone  while behind the wheel.

Is additional enforcement needed? Take our poll and tell us what roads you think need additional enforcement on the Jersey Shore.
