A motor vehicle collision in which a vehicle overturned and three were injured remains under investigation, Toms River police said.

The 11 a.m. Tuesday crash occurred at Highland Parkway and West Water Street in downtown Toms River.

Nora McNaught, 77, of Toms River was driving a 2003 Toyota northbound on Highland Parkway when she collided with a 2006 Honda Pilot that was westbound on Water Street, said Toms River Police Chief Michael Mastronardy.

Shannon Lindquist, 18 of Brick, was driving the Honda, which then overturned after the initial collision, police said. The road was closed for several hours.

A passenger in the Toyota — William McNaught, 81, of Manchester — had minor injuries, and both drivers were also injured, Mastronardy said. The three were each transported to Community Medical Center for treatment, he said.

Toms River Traffic Safety Corporal Sean Mchugh is investigating the accident.
