ATLANTIC CITY - Two people were in serious condition Sunday after a two-vehicle crash at Route 30 and Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard, police said.

Both people, who were passengers in a taxi, suffered extensive head injuries when the cab and another vehicle collided about 6:30 a.m., police said. The 31-year-old woman from New Hampshire and a male whose address was unknown were taken to AtlantiCare Regional Trauma unit after being treated at the scene.

The taxi driver suffered what police said was a nonlife-threatening head injury in the crash. Police were not identifying the taxi driver.

According to police, the taxi driver said he was traveling south on Huron Avenue after picking up the two passengers. He said he was driving across the Route 30 intersection when his vehicle was struck on the passenger side, police said.

The taxi was hit by a sedan driven by a Galloway Township driver, who police did not identify. He suffered minor injuries to his arms and refused medical attention at the scene, according to local authorities.

Police said there was no indication alcohol was involved.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call the Police Department's Traffic Unit at 609-347-5744. Information may be sent via text to TIP411 or to Crimestoppers at 609-652-1234.
