There are no reported injuries following a two vehicle accident that occurred on Thursday morning in Toms River.

Police said that 39-year-old Roberto Olivasmorales of Hillside was heading south on Hooper Avenue driving a tractor trailer and as he entered onto the ramp to take him onto Bay Avenue eastbound, a low-hanging Verizon fiber-optic line struck his vehicle.

The fiber optic line then snapped from its utility pole and was supine across the east and westbound lanes of Bay Avenue and on its way down it also struck and damaged a traffic signal and the hood of a vehicle looking to merge with traffic from the Bay Avenue ramp onto Hooper Avenue south.
