LAKEWOOD — A woman who struck a parked vehicle Thursday night was arrested at an auto care center where she stopped to get a new tire.

Township police said a Cadillac Escalade driven by a 37-year-old Toms River woman hit the car parked along Second Avenue near Clifton Avenue around 10 p.m., pushing it into two other vehicles in front of it.

Video posted by The Lakewood Scoop, which was first to report the incident, shows a blue sedan with heavy damage to the rear passenger's side tire. A white pickup truck and dark SUV were parked in front of the sedan.

The impact damaged the Escalade's front passenger tire but the woman was able to travel about two blocks from the crash scene, police said.  She was located by police with a tire that fell off her SUV, officials said.

In addition to $9.22 billion in municipal purpose taxes, special taxing districts that in some places provide municipal services such as fire protection, garbage collection or economic development levied $323.8 million in 2021.
