A white male who appeared to be in his 70’s collapsed while waiting on line outside of the Eatontown MVC facility, according to Little Silver Councilman AJ McNally, who was also on the line which started forming before 5:30 this morning.
McNally, who said he did not take a photo to protect the man’s privacy, said he noticed a commotion about 10 feet in front of him and then noticed the man on the ground at about 8:30 this morning.
Police officers assisted the man who had blood on his mask, bruises on his arms and swollen ankles. The officers seated the man in a chair until an ambulance showed up and took the man away, McNally said.
McNally said that following the incident, at about 9 am, customers waiting on line were sent home after being informed that the facility had met its capacity for the day. At 9:27, McNally was informed that the MVC computers crashed.
“This is unacceptable,” McNally said. “I can see giving MVC some slack when they reopened with a backlog in July, but here we are in September with long lines, people collapsing and the computers breaking down.”
McNally said that an officer told him there is no telling how long the computers would be down. “It could be five minutes or a few days,” he said the officer told him.
Updated 2:45 p.m.: Captain Theresa Healy, public information officer of the Eatontown Police Department, confirmed that a male collapsed while on line at MVC this morning. Healy said the man was 56 years old and was transported to an area hospital by EMTs.
