SOUTH BRUNSWICK — A 21-year-old woman riding in a van died Monday night after the vehicle crossed the median on Route 130 and flipped over.

The Ford Econoline van was heading south around 10:30 p.m. when it went across the northbound lanes near Deans Rhode Hall Road, hit a guardrail on the shoulder and flipped over, according to Deputy Police Chief James Ryan.

The woman was identified as Cassidy Cutler, 21, of Monroe. She and the driver, Eli Szmer, 32, also from Monroe were the only people in the van, Ryan said.

An investigation is ongoing into why Szmer lost control of the van.

The fatality is the fifth on South Brunswick roads in 2022 and the first on Route 130, according to State Police records.
