Darren Zappley said. “Alcohol was probably a contributing factor.” <span id="more-6713"></span></p> <p>Officials say the preliminary investigation revealed that McRae and two passengers were in a Volkswagen Passat traveling northbound around 11:45 p.m. when they collided with a 2002 Ford Explorer being driven by Arevalo-Martinez, headed south in the northbound lane.</p> <p>Police say several witnesses saw the crash and stopped to help the victims.</p> <p>One of the passengers in McRae’s car suffered multiple fractures and remains hospitalized in stable condition. The other passenger complained of pain and was admitted into the hospital for observation.</p> <p>Arevalo-Martinez, 40, suffered a broken hip.</p> <p>According to the New Jersey State Police Uniform Crime Reporting Unit, vehicular homicides are considered manslaughter and are, therefore, not reported as a homicide statistic.</p> <p>The Trentonian, however, includes death by auto and justifiable police shootings in its yearly homicide count. </p> <p>So far this year, 13 people have been killed in the capital city. </p> Penny RayMon, 30 Jul 2018 16:52:59 -0400 McRaeHenry Arevalo-Martinez
