ROOSEVELT, N.J. — A driver escaped injury following a bizarre crash Sunday in Monmouth County that left a large section of guardrail impaled completely through the vehicle.

There were no passengers in the vehicle, which crashed around 4:30 p.m. on Route 571 (North Rochdale Avenue) in Roosevelt, according to State Police.

Photos from the Millstone Township Fire Department, which also responded to the crash, show a portion of guard rail sharply bent and inside the rear of a wrecked SUV.

A State Police spokesman said no summonses were issued but couldn’t immediately say how the crash occurred.
