Driver Travelling at High Rate of Speed Crashes in Clementon
Police in Clementon, Camden County say a driver travelling at a high rate of speed lost control of the wheel and crashed off the White Horse Pike early Wednesday morning.
The driver of that vehicle must not have been paying very close attention to the news lately, and certainly didn't learn from Tiger Woods' recent accident that authorities in California determined to be the result of excessive speed.
The accident in Clementon reportedly happened around 1:30 a.m., 6abc.com reports.
The sedan involved reportedly rolled over 10 times, according to police, taking out a traffic light and crashing into a shopping center off Route 30 near Trout Avenue.
First responders had to work to free the driver from the twisted heap of metal before transporting him to an area hospital where his condition is reportedly critical.
The identity of the driver is unknown. Also unknown is if there were any extenuating circumstances the lead to the crash besides excessive speed, such as distracted driving or driving under the influence.
I wish people would stop treating our South Jersey roads like an installment of The Fast & The Furious. Even at 1:30 in the morning this driver could have killed someone else. Please be safe out there!
