A Toms River teen who was left seriously injured and blind in one eye after the Jeep he was riding in hit a tree after a U.S. postal truck turned prematurely in front of the Jeep recently settled his personal injury claim against the federal government, C.F. v. United States of America, for nearly $2 million.

On June 2, the plaintiff, referred to as C.F., settled for $1.965 million with the U.S. over injuries he sustained in a 2016 car accident in Ocean County.
