V NOAM It MUFMAVAatwy Part rw Maureen Walsh cries on stand as she tells court In Toms River yesterday about the auto accident in which her 20-year-old daughter was killed. Mother From page At Berkeley Township, just north of Moorage Avenue. "It was a big cloud of dust and glass flying all over the road," she said, "and the next thing I know her car went up into the air and landed on its side." "Her car flew by me and then the next thing I know I saw a car in front of me," she said. "I couldn't get out of my car because the door was jammed and I wanted to get over to my daughter's car. "Well, with the impact there was such a cloud of dust and debris that I couldn't see her, I couldn't see the car at all. It was all dirt and dust and it looked like glass flying and at that time, I didn't see the car that hit her," Mrs. Walsh testified. "He hit her so violently that he sent her car up in the air and down on its side and it slid down the road approximately I SO feet Then it hit a curb and it uprighted," she said. After she was able to get out of her car, Mrs. Walsh said, she started over to where her daughter's car had come to rest, but was stopped by other people at the scene. "Someone called to me and said, 'Don't go over there, " Mrs. Walsh said. After Assistant Ocean County Prosecutor John J. Foti Jr. completed his questioning of Mrs. Walsh, Public Defender Kevin Young told Superior Court Judge Donald F. Campbell he did not plan to cross-examine her. Another witness yesterday was Morris Bartholomew, Park Avenue, Berkeley Township, a paramedic who was on his way home when he came upon the accident only seconds after it happened. Bartholomew said he immediately went to Miss Walsh's car and reached in, but could find no pulse on the woman's body. "It was my view that she was dead and beyond help," he told the jury. He said as he went to sec about the occupants in the station wagon LeBert was driving, he saw a woman being restrained by a police officer. He said he heard her scream, "Oh no, dear God, don't tell me she's dead." Bartholomew said LeBert was just regaining consciousness and immediately became belligerent when Bartholomew asked him how he felt He said there was a heavy odor of alcohol from LeBert Berkeley Township patrolman Rob ert Smith testified that Miss Walsh's car traveled 1 10 feet backward after the impact Smith said he smelled alcohol on LeBert at the scene. He said he accompanied LeBert to Community Medical Center, here, and placed him under arrest at that time. He said LeBert refused to allow a blood sample to be taken to check his blood alcohol level Smith said he obtained a court order, returned to the hospital and a blood sample was taken. The blood alcohol level was .17. A person is considered intoxicated when the blood alcohol level is. 10. Foti is expected to call his final witness this morning. Ocean County Medical Examiner Walter E Corrigan, who is expected to testify about the cause of Miss Walsh's death. LeBert and a passenger in the car, Joseph Barton, 23, of Ocean Gate, were indicted by a grand jury less than five weeks after the fatal crash. Barton is charged with'motor vehicle theft and receiving stolen property. His trial is still pending. Ex-adviser to Reagan HUD target The Associated Press WASHINGTON The Department of Housing and Urban Development is seeking to recover about $700,000 from a former Reagan campaign adviser and his partners in a Georgia project and also has a dispute with them over another development, a HUD official said yesterday. The decision to ask the partnership to forfeit about $700,000 is a reversal of an unusual decision made earlier this year at HUD headquarters that has piqued the interest of congressional investigators reviewing allegations of political favoritism at HUD during the Reagan administration. The department now will seek repayment from the owners of the Cypress Mill Plantation in Brunswick, Ga., including Edward Weidenfeld, legal counsel to Reagan's 1980 campaign and an adviser to his 1984 re-election effort Neil Zittrauer, HUD's housing chief in Atlanta, said he hoped to reach agreement with the owners on the Brunswick project and would consider legal action if he can't Weidenfeld, a Washington lawyer, declined comment when contacted at his office. HUD auditors questioned more than $750,000 of the project's costs, alleging a construction company in which two of the partners were principals was not entitled to some profits and overhead it received and that the partners had not invested enough of their own money. But R. Hunter Cushing, a deputy undersecretary at HUD headquarters, earlier this year reduced the amount to $88,000. "It just came out of nowhere," Zittrauer said of Cushing's decision. "It obviously was the result of some meeting between the developers and people at headquarters." Cushing left HUD when the Bush administration took office and was named to a Commerce Department post But he resigned that job after he refused to testify before the congressional review. Three other former agency officials, including former HUD Secretary Samuel Pierce, also have refused to testify. Zittrauer said he was informed by C Austin Fitts, the department's new assistant secretary for housing, that she supported the results of the audit and that the money should be recovered. "They apparently realized that what we had done was consistent with department guidelines and policies," he said. FBI places city man on most-wanted list Press Staff Report A TWICE-CONVICTED armed robber from Asbury Park who is wanted for shooting at a New Jersey state trooper in April on Drummond Avenue in Neptune was added yesterday to the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list Arthur Lee Washington Jr., a 39-year-old associated with the militant Black Liberation Army, made the list because he is said to have vowed he would never return to prison, said Bernard J. Murphy, assistant special agent-in-charge of the FBI's Newark office. Washington is considered extremely dangerous, authorities said at a news conference. "If ever he gets stopped by whatever agency, there will likely be a confrontation," said State Police Capt Patrick Vona. Washington, whose last known address was Borden Avenue, Asbury Park, becomes the ninth New Jersey resident to be placed on the Top 10 list, which the FBI has compiled since 1 950. Washington has been convicted twice and given 15-year prison terms for armed robbery. Vona said Washington was on parole from his second conviction when the car he was riding in, driven by Robert K. White of Asbury Park, was pulled over on Drummond Avenue in Neptune by a state trooper. Police said the car had an expired inspection sucker. Vona said Washington got out the passenger door and began walking as state trooper Michael J. Clayton approached the car. Washington turned and fired several shots when Clayton ordered him to stop, Vona said. No one was injured, but Washington I v i ' i In April, police released this 1982 photo of Arthur Lee Washington Jr. managed to flee on foot he said. A search of Washington's Asbury Park apartment turned up three other weapons a machine gun and two handguns. A Monmouth County grand jury indicted Washington in May for attempted murder, aggravated assault escape, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. Washington is described as 6 feet 1 inch tall, about 220 pounds, dark complected with short hair and dark brown eyes. He also has scars on his right and left arms and another on his upper right leg- Mil For All Makes Cars and Trucks authorized INSURANCE REPLACEMENT SERVICE INSTALLED WHILE YOU WAIT WE'LL BEAT ANY PRICE.
