Toms River Police said that Heather Scoville, 36, was unable to properly turn along a curve on the eastbound side of Whitesville Road near the intersection of Leawood Avenue Monday morning that led to her entering the other part of the roadway and striking a marked New Jersey State Police SUV.

As a result, the trooper's vehicle then spun out and struck a Toms River school bus, a street sign and a utility pole.

The state police vehicle sustained significant damage from the crash.

There were no students on board the bus at the time of the collision and every driver involved in the crash was wearing their seatbelt.

Police said one victim was transported to the hospital for minor injuries sustained in the accident.

Scoville, though, was cited with Driving Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol, Reckless Driving and Failure to Maintain a Lane.

The accident remains under investigation by Toms River Traffic Safety Officer Robert Westfall and Traffic Safety Officer Mark Nater.
