Passengers taken to hospital after accident on Route 40

CARNEYS POINT TWP., – Earlier this afternoon, just near 1:00pm, emergency crews were dispatched to a motor vehicle accident on Route 40  which included a tractor trailer which allegedly had two victims who were trapped inside the truck. The two victims were reported to be two males that were in the tractor trailer and it is not official as to what caused the accident but reports of the tractor trailer swerving off of the road to avoid hitting another vehicle have surfaced. However, the men were alive upon when they were taken away to Christiana Hospital, however, the extent of their injuries are unknown.

The tractor trailer ended up in very bad condition and partially into the woods along the East-bound side of the U.S. highway that is heavily trafficked in Salem County, NJ. Traffic was held back for a period of time and one lane was open at 3:30pm when the above picture was taken.

We ask that your thoughts and prayers go out to the victim/s, their families and friends. We will keep you as updated as possible with details as they are made public.
