GoFundMe set up to help family of man seriously injured in 3-vehicle crash in Warren County

ALLAMUCHY TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help the family of a man seriously injured following a three-vehicle crash in Warren County last week.

The crash happened on Nov. 22, at around 3:18 p.m., at the intersection of County Route 517 and Ridge Road in Allamuchy Township, according to New Jersey State Police spokesperson Detective Jeffrey Lebron.

A preliminary police investigation revealed that a Jeep Wrangler was traveling east on Ridge Road and a Jeep SUV, driven by Lauren M. Gerhold, 33, was traveling north on County Route 517 and a Ford Pickup was traveling south on CR 517.

At the intersection, the Jeep Wrangler impacted the Ford on the passenger side and the Ford was then re-directed and impacted the Jeep SUV on the driver’s side, Lebron said.

As a result of this crash, the driver of the Jeep Wrangler and driver of the Ford suffered serious bodily injuries and were flown to an area hospital. Gerhold suffered fatal injuries, Lebron said.

The crash remains under investigation, Lebron said.

Paula Granado, who created the GoFundMe page, said Francisco Cristino Reyes was in the passenger seat of the Ford where he suffered the greatest impact of the accident.

“At this time, he is hospitalized at the Morristown Medical Center and is in very critical health conditions and is fighting for his life,” Granado said.

“Francisco Cristino Reyes is an excellent husband, brother-in-law, brother, friend, and he is the father of 5 children, one of whom is 3-years-old and needs special care,” Granado said.

The GoFundMe has set a goal of $50,000 and as of Tuesday morning, it has raised more than $6,000. If you would like to donate, click here.
