UPDATE:Bayville Men Seriously Injured In Parkway Accident Yesterday, State Police Say

by Patricia A. Miller

Two young men from Bayville were badly injured yesterday when the driver of  lost control of his car, careened off the Garden State Parkway, overturned, then struck a tree, State Police Sgt. Adam Grossman said.

Danny Viscel, 18, and Zachary Rowley, also 18, were taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune after the 2:45 p.m. accident Wednesday near milemarker 88.5 on the northbound side of the parkway, Grossman said.

Rowley - a passenger in the car- suffered serious injuries to his head and pelvis, Grossman said. The car became airborne after it overturned, then struck a tree.

No summonses have been issued, but the accident is under investigation, he said.

Both Viscel and Rowley are popular students at Central Regional High School, Superintendent Triantafillos Parlapanides said.

"Danny had some bump and bruises while Zack was in bad shape but is doing better and still has a long way to recovery," Parlapanides said.
"Zack had head injuries and a broken pelvis."

Members of the school district's crisis team were on call to talk to any students who needed help, he said.

"We also had Mr. Jeff Mangold, follow Zack's schedule to help students and dismiss any rumors that were going around," Parlapanides said. "Our prayers and thoughts are with Zack and the Rowley family. "

Actually Angela, you cannot drive in whatever lane you feel like. You are called a left lane dick. Look it up. The left lane is for passing and you could be ticketed for it. You are obstructing traffic. Though I appreciate your positive spin on a terrible situation, please take this opportunity to know the rules when you are traveling through NJ. I hate to say it, but I agree, it is quite possible you contributed to the circumstances that caused the accident. You are not responsible that another car was speeding, however, had they not had to pass you on the right they may have been able to control their car more. The driver is certainly responsible for reckless driving without a doubt...based soley on Angela's eyewitness testimony but Angela, what's good for the goose is good for the gander. Don't get defensive. Get driving lessons. As far as John...people don't you get it? He is purposely on these sites to give negative input. He is supposed to get everyone all riled up to continue the comments. That is his job. If you ignore him, he will go away. Nobody is that dumb or uneducated even if they grew up under a rock. He is hired to do what he is doing. Just ignore him. Its all fake.

Michelle if only we ignore you, will you go away. Obviously you're a fan of the 2 boys involved so you come on with your 2 cents. Angela doesn't need driving lessons, but I would bet Danny Viscel could use some. If someone enters the left lane to pass a car in the center and some fool travelling 80 mph comes up behind them, the fool should be patient, which Viscel was not, which caused the accident.

Any further news about legal action against this driver?

I was in the left lane passing the car in the middle that this kid cut off, I didn't even have time to move because he was going so fast. Pretty sure I can't get ticketed for that. I know exactly what I was doing and don't need driving lessons but thanks for the unnecessary suggestion. So typical that everyone looks to point fingers at everyone but the one at fault. He made a decision to drive recklessly and he paid for it. And I never said I was surrounded by death from car accidents, you need comprehending lessons if that's what you took away from my comments. I don't need to explain myself to any one, I was just trying to help. People are so disrespectful it's disgusting and sad that social media can turn situations into something so unnecessary. I truly hope those boys recover and thank god everyday they get to wake up every morning.
