Passenger killed in 3-car crash at Salem County intersection

A South Jersey woman was killed when three vehicles collided Sunday at a Salem County intersection, according to the New Jersey State Police.

A Toyota was traveling north on Fork Bridge Road in Upper Pittsgrove Township shortly before 5 p.m. when the car collided with a Nissan traveling east on Route 40, a police spokesman said.

The Nissan then struck a Honda pickup truck traveling west on Route 40.

Barbara Carman, 72, of Buena, a passenger in the Nissan, died of her injuries, police said. The drivers of the three vehicles and a passenger in the Honda suffered minor to moderate injuries.

No charges have been filed as of Monday afternoon, and the crash remains under investigation.

Motorists traveling on Fork Bridge encounter stop signs at the intersection, while traffic on Route 40 has the right of way.

While a cause for the crash has not been revealed, it was raining at the time, police confirmed.
