The Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office has announced a man has been charged following a fatal motor vehicle collision.
The collision happened Sunday when authorities responded to Route 9 South near Texas Road.
According to officers, officers located a Toyota Echo containing four people with varying injuries.
Officers say one of them, Ciara Gee, 20, of North Carolina, was pronounced dead at the scene. Officers also located Sergio Seixeiro, 40, of Monroe, in his damaged Ford Expedition.
An initial investigation determined Seixiero's truck impacted the rear of the Toyota Echo. At this time, speed, reckless driving and intoxication are believed to be contributing factors.
Seixeiro has been charged with one count of aggravated manslaughter, one count of vehicular homicide, and three counts of assault by auto. Seixeiro was also issued a motor vehicle summons for driving while intoxicated.
Seixeiro is presently lodged at the Middlesex County Adult Correction Center where he is being held pending a pre-trial detention hearing in Superior Court.
Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Connolly at (732)721-5600 ext. 3821 or Detective Berman at (732) 745-4328.
