Trucks Crush Car and Pin Woman on I-295 in Camden County
A 33-year-old woman of Magnolia, NJ was driving her Ford Escort in the interstate through Haddon Heights when a tractor-trailer following behind her failed to brake for traffic that had slowed for a construction zone. According to an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer, she was pinned in her car, crushed between two trucks and suffered serious injuries below her waist.
The accident occurred when a tractor-trailer veered to the left and slammed into a concrete barrier. It bounced back into the center lane of traffic and plowed into the rear of the woman’s Ford Escort. The impact drove her car into the rear of a box truck carrying liquor.
The box truck collided with several more vehicles before it came to a stop.
The female motorist was sandwiched between the two trucks and pinned by the engine block of her car. Rescue workers had to pull her from the wreckage.
The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured. The box truck driver suffered neck and back pain.
The article said the tractor-trailer driver would receive a traffic summons for careless driving. Other charges may be forthcoming after an investigation and an inspection of the truck by state police.
