FREEHOLD TOWNSHIP ― A 21-year-old Marlboro man has died from injuries suffered from a multi-vehicle crash that also killed both of his parents, according to the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office.
Mark M. Salib, 21, died Tuesday afternoon, according to authorities.
Mark Salib was driving a compact SUV with his parents, mother Hanaa I. Salib, 52, and father Masoud B. Salib, 61, as passengers when their car was rear-ended in a crash before 1:30 p.m. Sunday, according to Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Lori Linskey.
The crash started when another compact SUV traveling southbound on Route 9 sideswiped two other vehicles and then rear-ended Salib's SUV near the intersection with westbound Route 33, according to the Prosecutor's Office. The impact propelled Salib's vehicle into another car, authorities said.
Hanaa I. Salib was pronounced dead at the scene, Linskey said. Her husband Masoud was taken to a local hospital where he died of his injuries, she said.
The driver of the car that rear-ended Salib's vehicle ― identified as a 74-year-old woman from Marlboro ― was taken to a local hospital for treatment of serious injuries, according to the Prosecutor's Office.
