Brooke Costanzo, 16, was extricated by firefighters and taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Medical Center in New Brunswick after a Honda Pilot that police said she was driving ran off a South Brunswick road and struck a tree just after 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
She was pronounced dead just after dawn Monday, a source connected to the family told Daily Voice.
"No amount of money could heal your hearts but I pray you find strength in each other," wrote a contributor to the GoFundMe page .
Saddle Brook's Costanzo family has had to endure more crushing heartache than most: Tuesday night, a candlelight vigil is scheduled for Brooke Costanzo, whose father died in a tragic motorcycle accident 6½ years ago .
