LOGAN TWP. – A crash on Sept. 21 involving a van, a dump truck, a roll off style truck, and a motor home killed a Pennsville man and caused the closure of Route 322 for four hours.
According to the Logan Township Police, a 2018 Ford Transit van was travelling
westbound on Route 322 and preparing to turn into Clean Harbors. The van was struck from
behind by a 2019 Kenworth dump truck. That impact caused the Ford to cross the
centerline of the roadway and into oncoming eastbound traffic where it was struck head
on by a 2008 Peterbuilt “roll-off” style truck. That secondary collision forced the rear
end of the Transit van back into the westbound lane where it was stuck by a 2014
Winnebago motor home.
The driver of the Ford Transit van, an 80 year old male from Pennsville, was
pronounced dead at the scene. The drivers of the other vehicles involved suffered minor
injuries but all refused transport to the hospital.
Police responded to the crash at 11:31 a.m. The roadway was reopened at 3:30 p.m. The incident remains under investigation.
