Two children remain in critical condition after being hit by car in Keyport
Monmouth County Prosecutors have released new information regarding the pedestrian crash on Main Street in Keyport Tuesday that critically injured two young children.
Investigators say Debbie Triano, 59, of Keyport was walking with her two young grandchildren on Main Street when they were all hit in the northbound lane by a 2008 black Acura TL driven by Kathy L. Ascolese, 22, of Keyport around 3:12 pm.
The youngest of the two grandchildren was being pushed by his grandmother in a convertible stroller/car seat.
The stroller’s seat became dislodged upon impact with the Acura TL from the stroller’s frame and it became airborne, landing a substantial distance from the initial impact.
