Both victims were wearing helmets, but they were not state Department of Transportation-approved headgear.

Bongiovi was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick where she was admitted for treatment. Her current medical condition is unknown at this time

The cause of the crash is still under investigation. Police ask anybody with information about the accident to call traffic safety officers at (732) 525-5431.
