Truck Strikes House on Reeds Beach Road in Middle Township

On March 18th, 2021 at approximately 3:35 PM the Middle Township Police Department responded to a reported motor vehicle accident on Reeds Beach Road in the Dias Creek section of the Township.  The investigation revealed a silver 2010 Chevy 1500 pick-up driven by Steven Anderson, age 48 of Franklinville, was traveling west on Reeds Beach Road with passenger Christopher Watson, age 44 of Quinton.  During travel the vehicle began to slide causing it to cross the center line and oncoming lane, enter the yard of 49 Reeds Beach Road, strike a utility pole causing it to snap at the base, then strike the corner of the house on the property, before striking a tree head on causing the vehicle to come to final rest. Anderson had a minor injury and Watson reported no injuries.  Both refused medical treatment.  There was a resident in the house at the time of the accident who was not injured.  Minor damage occurred to the house at 49 Reeds Beach Road.  Neighboring houses sustained minor property damage in the form of power and cable lines being pulled and removed from their connections as the utility pole went down.  Anderson was issued a summons for careless driving.  The Goshen Fire Department and Middle Township EMS assisted on scene.
