BELMAR - A woman was killed in a crash on Route 35 near the Belmar marina early Sunday morning.

The Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office confirmed that Tiffany Soto, of Howell, was in a black Honda Civic being driven by her boyfriend, Edwin Martinez, at around 2 a.m. At the intersection of Route 35 and 8th Avenue, police say Martinez struck another car and then the curb before the Civic flipped over. They say the vehicle went airborne off a bridge and landed in the marina parking lot. Soto was ejected from the car and landed in the water. Her body was quickly recovered by firefighters, but she died from her injuries.

Police say two people in the other car were not injured. Martinez also survived.

No charges have been filed. Police are awaiting toxicology reports.

Authorities have not yet said what caused the crash. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office.
