Two Long Branch Men Killed in Tinton Falls Crash

Third, injured passenger not facing charges at this time.


The two men killed after their car crashed during a high-speed pursuit in Tinton Falls last Thursday have been identified as Long Branch residents.

Rahmel K. Adams, 21, and Jermal Crawford, 23, were killed when their car hit "multiple trees" on Shafto Road on Sept. 13 just after 10:30 p.m., according to the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office.

A third passenger, whose name is not being released by prosecutors because he has not been charged with a crime, was taken to a "local hospital."

Police took a .380 semi-automatic handgun and a 9mm handgun from the car and several bags of .380 caliber rounds. One officer pulled a gun from the car when the men were pulled over and another was recovered after the crash.

According to the Asbury Park Press, "State Department of Corrections records list a Jermel S. Crawford — with the same date of birth as Jermal Crawford — as having been convicted of aggravated assault in 2010 and given a year’s probation."
