SOUTH TOMS RIVER, New Jersey -- Authorities in New Jersey say a nurse who struck a pedestrian with her car performed CPR on the victim.

The Asbury Park Press reports 26-year-old Danielle Frederick, of Toms River, and 27-year-old Vincent Mangione, of Jackson, were both struck Saturday night in South Toms River by a vehicle driven by 28-year-old Allyse Gombas, of Toms River.

Frederick remained hospitalized Monday in critical condition, while Mangione was treated for a minor injury.

No charges have been made and the incident is still under investigation.
