A New Hampshire man died and his wife and two daughters were hurt in a single-vehicle crash along the Black Horse Pike in Pleasantville, N.J. Tuesday.

The crash happened along the Black Horse Pike near Route 9 around 1 p.m. Surveillance video shows a red minivan driving west on the Black Horse going off the road and into a pole.

Allison Hawks Nasta, 28, of Manchester, N.H. lost control of the van, the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office said Wednesday.

Her husband William Nasta, 34, was in the passenger seat and died in the wreck. Hawks Nasta and the couple's 5-year-old and 3-month-old daughters sustained non-life-threatening injuries, authorities said.

Video shows the woman removing her kids from the van.

Originally there were reports that the crash was a hit-and-run. But Pleasantville Police later confirmed that it was only a single vehicle crash involving the minivan.

Traffic appeared to be getting by the crash scene when Chopper 10 arrived on the scene around 1:50 p.m.

Prosecutors continue to investigate the crash.
