Long Branch Shop Sustains Damage from Crash

An auto body shop in Long Branch, NJ, sustained structural damage from a motor vehicle crash Sept. 23.

The collision occurred at 9:21 a.m., said Long Branch police Sgt. Jorge Silverio. The unidentified driver was not seriously injured and no criminal charges will be filed, Silverio said.
As police investigated the crash, Neptune OEM and Asbury Park’s Special operations crew assessed the structural damaged and worked to temporarily reinforce a damaged support beam inside Auto Body Solutions.

Auto Body Solutions’ employee Brian Leal, 25, said no one was inside the building at the time of the collision.

“After the crash the driver was outside of the car walking around,” Leal said. “He seemed shaken up, but it looked like he was fine.”

Leal said the car crashed into a garage bay door and caused damage to not only a support beam but the two vehicles parked inside the building.

“We just finished painting the one on the lift,” Leal said. “We won’t be able to open until the damage is repaired.”
