Fisher, who previously resided in Hawthorne, N.J., was released pending a court appearance, according to Hackettstown police.

Their investigation determined by Fisher was traveling east on Route 46 at the intersection with Stiger Street shortly after 11 a.m.  on Oct. 1 when her 2008 Chrysler struck a 2002 Hyundai driven by 56-year-old Debra Smythe of Hackettstown.

Smythe's vehicle, which was stopped in traffic, was pushed forward into a 2010 Chevrolet driven by 37-year-old Stella Landolfi of Independence Township.

Fisher's vehicle continued east on Route 46, sideswiping a 2001 Volvo driven by 44-year-old Kristina Hentschel of Belvidere and a 2010 Honda driven by 62-year-old Irene Cardell of Succasunna.

Cardell's Honda struck a 2005 Pontiac driven by 18-year-old David Rosado, Jr., of Great Meadows,  which was stopped in front of her.

Several  people involved were injured, including Fisher and an eight-year-old boy who was a passenger in another car, and transported to Hackettstown Regional Medical Center.
