-------- Earlier Story ----------
A three-car crash on Route 34 and Belmar Boulevard has snarled traffic as emergency workers attempt to help the injured and clear the busy intersection.
The crash happened about 4:25 p.m. and involves two sedans and an SUV. One northbound lane of the state highway is blocked, funneling traffic through one lane around the accident.
Two sedans appear to have hit head-on in the lefthand northbound lane just south of the intersection with Belmar Boulevard. One sedan and one SUV are facing south in the northbound lanes.
Wall First Aid & Rescue squad was attending to one person who appeared to be trapped in a red sedan. Wall Police were directing traffic away from the accident from Belmar Boulevard. Traffic was able to pass southbound on Route 34.
The crash appears to have taken down a portion of the intersection's traffic signal. And the overhead signal also is inoperable as of 5:00 p.m.
No other information was immediately available.
