Porsche launches into New Jersey building's second floor leaving 2 dead, police say

Two people were killed in New Jersey early Sunday when a Porsche launched into the air and smashed into the second story of a commercial building, investigators said.

The sports car, a 2010 Porsche Boxster convertible, was traveling at “a high rate of speed” when the driver lost control, hit a center median and struck an embankment that sent it smashing through the building, Toms River Police spokeswoman Jillian Messina told Fox News.

The victims were later identified as 22-year-old Braden DeMartin of Toms River and his passenger, 23-year-old Daniel Foley, also of Toms River, the department said in a news release. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash unfolded around 6:30 a.m., Sgt. Vincent Pedalino told NJ.com. He said the building, which housed a real estate office and several other businesses, was unoccupied at the time.

Skid marks could be seen stretching across four lanes of traffic in the direction of the building, the outlet reported.

The Porsche appeared to bore a gaping hole in the brick building, according to pictures that local news outlets posted online. First responders cordoned off the area as they investigated how the vehicle went airborne.

Toms River Building Inspector John Gerrity subsequently deemed the building unsafe, the department said. It was unclear how long it would be before people were allowed to enter.

It was unclear exactly how fast the Porsche was going and what caused the driver to lose control. Police said the crash remained under investigation.

Toms River is about 50 miles north of Atlantic City.

Weird how these self driving cars keep killing people.

Last line of the article. But before that "Porsche crashes into building"...Porsche does this....porsche does that...Killed two people victims were...

Porsche was going at a fast rate of speed when the driver lost control.

Not that the driver was speeding. The car was speeding.

This is a pet peeve of mine.

And it still doesn't say a word about it being a self driving car as you do.

Agreed....but sadly he took his passenger with him...


If you tolerate this, then your children will be next.


I have never quoted someone in my signature....but I found such a shallow, idiotic, and inane comment like this worthy!

Gotta appreciate two things:

The performance of a Porsche.

The truth about Darwin's theory of natural selection.

This story reminds me of the death of my ex-wife's boyfriend who went with his brother to test out a new carburetor that he put on his 1/4 mile race car. They took the car out on the back roads near Denver International airport when the throttle linkage got stuck full open and the ended up coming to a stop head on into the concrete loading docks of a warehouse at well over 100 miles per hour. From what I understood they needed a big spatula to remove their remains from the concrete.

The moral of that story is take a raincheck on ride along after a new carb install.

He was a nice guy that I could have kicked his ass with both hands tied behind my back....but the fact he dated my ex made me feel sorry for him.

Good lesson. Unlike fuel injection, the carbs had one link and connection to deliver fuel. As for the ex-wife's boyfriend, well, perhaps he's in a better place, as he may have hurt others later on.

As for wives, and ex wives, I don't recommend either.

All the best,
WW

How fast?

Fast enough to fly.


I knew a guy who launched himself while riding a motorcycle.
Struck a utility pole and impaled his head on one of the metal
steps.

No big loss. He was a bar bouncer and fairly good wrestler.
Bouncer and wrestler were his best characteristics.
