    An elderly man was killed Wednesday afternoon after his Nissan Maxima collided with a dump truck in Deptford Township, NJ.

    Investigators say the 82-year-old man was making a U-Turn on Delsea Drive at Fox Run Road around 12:45 p.m. when he collided with a Deptford public works department dump truck that was traveling behind him.

    The man was taken to Inspira Medical Center, Woodbury where he was pronounced dead at 1:35 p.m. No one else was inside his vehicle. The victim has not been identified pending the notification of his family.

    The driver of the dump truck was not hurt but was taken to the hospital anyway as part of township protocol for personnel involved in car accidents.

    The Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office and Deptford Township Police Department continue to investigate the crash.
