A man died early Sunday morning after he crashed his 2000 Honda Civic into a utility pole, authorities said.
Bruce Long, a 38-year-old Williamstown resident, was driving southbound on Radio Road around 1:25 a.m. when his car continued off the roadway instead of going around a curve in the road, said Al Della Fave, spokesman for the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.
Long’s Civic then crashed into a utility pole, Della Fave said. When Little Egg Harbor police arrived at the scene, near the intersection of Radio Road and Kadlubeck Way, Long was still in the car but was motionless and unresponsive, Della Fave said.
Long was pronounced dead at the scene.
Della Fave said it’s unclear what led Long to drive off the roadway. He said the crash report indicated there was no sign Long attempted to break, adding that no skid marks from the tires were found on the roadway.
Long had a relative that lived in Little Egg Harbor, Della Fave said.
The crash remains under investigation by the Little Egg Harbor Police Department.
