    Officials are investigating a car crash that killed a man and injured a teenager in Absecon, New Jersey.

    A teenage boy from Galloway Township was driving on Route 30 near Haddon Avenue on Sunday at 6:48 p.m. As he was driving, investigators say a 57-year-old man ran in front of traffic in an attempt to cross the road.

    The man was struck by the car and was later pronounced dead at the scene. He has not yet been identified.

    The teen driver was taken to the Atlanticare Regional Medical Center-Mainland Campus for treatment.
    White Horse Pike eastbound was closed for about two hours before it later reopened.

    Police continue to investigate the crash.

    It was the second fatal accident in as many nights on Route 30. On Saturday, shortly after 10 p.m., one person was killed and another injured after their vehicle struck a barrier and overturned.
