86-Year-Old Gloucester County Woman Killed in Accident on Delsea Drive
A senior citizen from Gloucester County lost her life this week when the vehicle she was traveling in reportedly made an unsuccessful left turn onto Delsea Drive and collided with an oncoming car.
86-year-old Maria Calabria, of Sewell, was fatally injured in Monday's early afternoon crash on Delsea Drive near Park Place Blvd.
The car she was a front-seat passenger in was reportedly heading northbound on Delsea Drive when the driver attempted to turn left onto Parke Place Blvd. (in Washington Twp.), according to Courier Post. A vehicle traveling southbound on Delsea broadsided the car Calabria was in.
The driver of the vehicle that hit Calabria's is 23-year-old Newtown Square, Pennsylvania resident Montgomery Brown who was not reported to be seriously injured. However, the driver of the vehicle carrying Maria Calabria was badly hurt and transported to an area hospital for treatment. The identity of that driver is unknown, and there's no word on whether any charges have been filed.
But Washington Township Police continue to investigate the crash, which shut down traffic on Delsea Drive for several hours, and are asking anyone who may have witnessed the accident to email Officer Joshua Bradford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our thoughts are with Maria Calabria's family at this incredibly tragic and sad time.
