A Whiting woman was taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center today after her car collided with another vehicle on Route 530 after a heavy downpour, police said. 

Francine M. Mahoney, 58, Whiting, was traveling eastbound around 10:45 a.m. when her 2006 Toyota Corolla collided with a 2001 Mercury Marquis driven by Edward D. Weiss, 49, Whiting. The Weiss vehicle was traveling eastbound at the time of the accident, which occurred near Keswick Pines, police said.

Both drivers were properly restrained by seat belts at the time of the crash and the vehicle airbags deployed. Weiss refused treatment at the scene and Mahoney was transported to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, police said.

Severe road flooding brought on by the heavy rain in the area may have been a factor in the crash, police said.

The crash is under investigation by Patrolman Douglas Higgins and Patrolman Thomas O’Hare.

The Whiting First Aid Squad, Whiting Volunteer Fire Company, Quality Medical Transport and MONOC paramedics also responded.
