BAYONNE -- A 29-year-old man has been issued tickets for speeding and careless driving for a New Jersey Turnpike crash that killed a 5-year-old city boy earlier this year, police said.

On Aug. 20, a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck driven by Jeremy Chanecka of Binghamton, New York rear-ended a Saturn Ion on the Hudson County extension of the Turnpike near Exit 14A, state police Sgt. Jeff Flynn said.

Adrian Lopez, 5, who was sitting in the back seat of the Ion, was killed in the crash.

After being rear-ended, the Ion was propelled into the back of a third car, which then rear-ended a fourth car. The fourth car subsequently rear-ended a fifth car, Flynn said.

While no additional charges are pending in the case, Flynn said the investigation is still ongoing.

If police develop information that may warrant criminal charges, those details would be presented to the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office to determine whether charges should be filed, the police spokesman said.

The current status of the summonses issued to Chanecka couldn't immediately be determined.

The driver of the Ion, Adrian's father, and two other passengers -- a 6-year-old girl and a 24-year-old man -- were taken to the hospital for injuries that weren't life-threatening, police said in August.

Adrian, a Brooklyn-born Bayonne resident, was about to start kindergarten at Horace Mann School in September when he died, according to his obituary.

He was remembered at a wake earlier this year as an active, happy child who loved basketball. Neighbors said he always said "hi" to everyone he knew.

An online fundraiser to help the Lopez family deal with expenses in the wake of the tragedy has raised $14,437 as of Tuesday.

A family member of Adrian Lopez declined to comment at this time on the summonses issued to Chanecka and the status of the crash investigation.
