She is charged with leaving the scene of a motor vehicle crash resulting in death and is currently lodged in the Ocean County Jail.
Conover was treated on scene for severe head injuries on the night of the accident and was transported to Monmouth Medical Southern Campus in Lakewood where he was later pronounced deceased.
OCPO Major Crimes Fatal Accident Investigations and the Ocean County Sheriff's Department CSI immediately responded to the scene to assist.
