‘It was like we were having a party’: Mom of young girls dies in New Jersey snowstorm

By DAVID HARRIS AND MARIA ROGERS, Associated Press – APRIL 08: A snowstorm is seen at a house in West Jordan, Utah, U.S. on April 8, 2018.

A mother of four children died Saturday in a New Jersey storm after her vehicle ran over and she was killed, authorities said.

Authorities did not say when or how the driver lost control of the vehicle and killed the woman, but she was pronounced dead at a hospital, authorities told ABC News.

The woman’s husband, a contractor who also works at the home, was not injured, the Department of Environmental Protection said in a statement.

“We can confirm the deceased was a New York State Department of Conservation employee who died in an accident Saturday afternoon,” said Bill St. Clair, the department’s assistant director of public affairs.

Authorities have not released the driver’s name.

St. Claire said the state department has a dedicated investigative team to help determine the cause of the accident.

The New York City-based agency is not responsible for accident victims and their families.

“The New York Department of Parks and Recreation is investigating the accident and is providing consular assistance,” the agency said in its statement.

The incident is being investigated as a “road rage incident,” which is not a criminal offense, St. Circles said.

“Any further details are to be provided to the New York Attorney General’s Office,” the department said.

The state agency has posted a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

Authorities are still seeking witnesses.

New Jersey Gov.

Chris Christie said he is saddened by the death of the woman’s partner, and the governor said the agency is “in full support of the state’s investigation.”

“We are also cooperating fully with authorities,” Christie said.

New York’s State Department for Conservation said it is investigating.

“As a result of this accident, the state of New York is suspending its permit for the home where the deceased resides, and we are in the process of contacting her family,” the state said in the statement.
