Three men were injured recently in a car accident that resulted in one vehicle overturning and multiple victims getting trapped inside their vehicles. According to NJ.com, the crash occurred in Pennsville Township on route 49. For unknown reasons, a Ford Mustang and a Toyota SR5 collided. The 70-year-old driver of the red Mustang, which crashed into a guardrail after the collision, was hospitalized for non-life-threatening injuries. A 51-year-old driver and a 55-year-old passenger sustained minor injuries after their Toyota SR5 overturned about 100 feet away from the Mustang. It is unclear what caused the New Jersey car crash or if either driver will be cited for the injury accident.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2009, 14 people were killed in car accidents in Salem County. This is a slight decrease from the 16 fatal injuries suffered in accidents in the area in 2008.
