A Barnegat woman was killed in a three-car crash Thursday on Route 72 in Burlington County.

Police responded at 5:27 p.m. on eastbound Route 72, near mile post 5 in Woodland Township, where 21-year-old Kaitlyn Wilson was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

A preliminary investigation revealed a vehicle driven by John Endress, 34, of Delran, westbound collided head-on with Wilsons car, which was eastbound, police said. Wilson’s car then collided with a car, also eastbound, driven by Kevin Kessinger, 48, also of Barnegat, who was transported to an area hospital for injuries.

The accident is under investigation.
