4 year old crashes car into Ocean Township building

Ocean Township Police LogoOcean Township- A four year old child who was left in a running car with his two year old sister climbed into the driver’s seat and put the car in reverse yesterday morning, causing the vehicle to back across a Rustic Drive parking lot before being stopped by a brick stairwell, according to a statement issued by the Ocean Township Police Department.  Neither child was hurt and there were no injuries reported.

The children’s father, Travaris S. Reevey, 41 of Ocean, was arrested on the scene by Officer Alisa Martinez and Detective Michael Melody.  Reevey was charged with child endangerment. During his arrest it was discovered that he was wanted on a Contempt of Court Warrant in Asbury Park.

Reevey posted bail on the $250 Asbury Park warrant and was released on his own recognizance on the child endangerment charges.  The children were released to their mother after the New Jersey Department of Child Protection and Permanency was notified.

    “AND he was wanted on a contempt of court warrant.” Sounds like the guy is not good on following rules. And you wonder why I think people should have to pass a test to become parents.
