HAMILTON TWP. — A 6-year-old Sicklerville boy was killed Saturday afternoon in a two-vehicle accident on the Atlantic City Expressway, state police said.
Jillian Nimmo, 26, of Sicklerville, was traveling westbound in the left lane near mile marker 16.2 when she attempted to move to the center lane, said New Jersey State Pollice Sgt. First Class Gregory Williams.
Nimmo’s Hyundai Tuscon sideswiped a Toyota Carolla driven by Jerome Fogel, 89, of Westmont.
The vehicles ran off the roadway, traveled down an embankment and struck several trees before coming to a stop, Williams said.
The child in Nimmo’s vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene. The child’s name was not released.
Fogel and a passenger in his vehicle, Loretta Gregorio, 82, of Haddonfield, were airlifted to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City for treatment. Details of their injuries were not available Sunday.
Nimmo was transported by ambulance for evaluation.
The expressway was temporarily closed following the 2 p.m. crash as a medical helicopter landed at the scene.
The accident remains under investigation and no charges had been filed as of Sunday afternoon.
