UPDATE: Thank you to Hannah from Whiting who sent us additional footage from the car fire that occurred on Route 37 in Toms River on August 2nd. 

Keep scrolling to see her footage:

Thank you to my Mom and her friend Sue who recently came down to visit me.

But as these two were heading towards the parkway down Route 37 in Toms River, they were met with a very unpleasant incident.

Listen to Nicole Murray middays on 94.3 The Point and download our free 94.3 The Point app.

They noticed a massive ball of smoke in the air so my mom pulled out her phone and started recording.

It turns out, there was a massive car fire on Route 37 East and my mom caught the entire thing on camera.

As of now, there is no news on whether or not anyone was injured but I am keeping my fingers crossed that this was just a crazy accident with zero injuries or fatalities.

As more information comes through, we will let you know.

If you have any information, please email me at Nicole.Murray@townsquaremedia.com.

So first, there was dark smoke spotted from afar.

But then as she got closer, the amount of damage became apparent.

In this video, you can actually get a look at the car after the massive flames were put out.

This footage was taken on August 2nd around 1:15 PM.

And here is no surprise: this incident has resulted in some massive traffic on Route 37 in Toms River heading towards the coast.
