New Jersey Detective Dies Two Weeks After Vehicle Crash

January 22, 2015  | 

A detective from the Ocean County (N.J.) Prosecutor's Office died early Wednesday from injuries he suffered in a Lacey Township crash two weeks earlier.

Detective John Scott Stevens, 44, passed away shortly after 3:30 a.m., the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office announced in a news release.

"We extend our heartfelt sympathies to his family and loved ones, and pledge our continued support to his family during this most difficult time," Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato said in a statement.

Stevens was on duty Thursday, Jan. 8, as he drove a 2004 Honda Civic undercover vehicle east on Dover Road, prosecutors told Philly.com.

Shortly before 11 a.m., he "abruptly" crossed the westbound lane and veered off the road, striking a tree, according to investigators.

He was flown to Jersey Shore Medical Center, where he remained in critical condition until he succumbed to his injuries.

Lots of possibilities with scant information. Heartfelt prayers for his family and friends.
