Police blocked a major South Jersey roadway this morning after a two-car wreck that left two drivers and a child injured.
The cars collided where Malaga Road (County Route 659) intersects with the Black Horse Pike in Monroe Township, Gloucester County Friday around 6:15 a.m.
According to township police, a 2006 Chevrolet Malibu driven by a yet-to-be-identified woman was attempting to make a left turn from northbound Malaga road on yellow while the yet-to-be-identified driver of a 2004 Nissan Sentra attempted to go straight through the intersection from the other direction. The younger woman had a 3-year-old boy in the car.
An initial investigation revealed that the Malibu turned into the path of the Sentra causing the cars to collide, according to police.
The 40-year-old driver of the Malibu was transported to JFK Hospital with arm and chest injuries. The 24-year-old driver of the Sentra was more seriously injured, according to police.
As SkyForce10 hovered overhead, first responders could be seen taking a woman from one of the vehicles and putting her on a stretcher. She was transported by helicopter to Cooper University Hospital where she was treated for a leg injury and possible internal injuries, police said.
The 3-year-old boy also went to Cooper with internal injuries.
The Black Horse Pike was closed southbound while Malaga Road was closed. Northbound traffic slowly snaked by on the Black Horse.
