Pine Beach Mayor Lawrence Cuneo tells the Riverside Signal a drunk driver ran into two stopped police cars from behind along Route 9 late Friday night in front of the old Beachwood Shopping Center.

The impact pushed a cruiser with officer Rob King inside into a cruiser with officer Jesse Urban who was knocked out of the car and onto the pavement.

The Ashbury Park Press reports the accident involved two police cars, a minivan and a fourth Friday night.

“Our entire Pine Beach family extends our thoughts and prayers to the officers and their family,” the mayor told the Riverside Signal.

Motorists were advised by Berkeley Township Police to avoid Route 9 in Bayville/Pine Beach into the early morning hours; the road was reopened around dawn on Saturday morning.
