The crash happened near the Goodkind Bridge that spans the Raritan River, tying up traffic on surrounding highways during the initial response.

The Infiniti may have briefly landed on top of the pickup, according to images of the crash and calls to New Jersey 101.5.

Frick was remembered as a devoted family man, former U.S. Naval service member and a senior vice president with Heller Construction, according to his online obituary.

Reyes was released on pre-trial monitoring, after surrendering his passport and driver’s license.

Anyone with potential information on the case was asked to contact the New Brunswick Police Department at 732-745-5005 or the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at 732-745-4011.
