The driver of a car who died in a fiery crash in Lakewood earlier this month reached speeds of more than 100 miles per hour and was going 85 mph when he lost control and hit a tree near Cross Street, the Ocean County prosecutor’s office said Wednesday.
The prosecutor’s office released the dashcam from the patrol car of the Toms River police officer who tried to pull the car over before the driver, Rynell Bennett, 29, of Bellefonte, PA, took off. In the 10-minute you can see the chase, which lasts less than 2 minutes before Bennett’s car disappears and Toms River Police Officer Kyle Lamar terminates the pursuit.
The June 7 crash, which killed Bennett and an unnamed 16-year-old boy from Gloucester, NJ, happened less than a minute later on Massachusetts Avenue just north of Cross Street, according to the dashcam footage.
