Four people were taken to area hospitals after a car crash Tuesday in Egg Harbor Township, police said.

The accident occurred at about 11:35 a.m. on Delilah Road in the area of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia building in the Cardiff section, said Lt. Robert Gray, the township's public information officer.

A 1996 Toyota Camry driven by Damalyn Garcia-Serrano of Landisville, Buena Borough, was traveling west on Delilah Road near the rear parking lot of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, police said.

The Camry crossed the double yellow line and crashed into an eastbound 2007 Chrysler driven by Christopher Bercaw of Galloway Township, Gray said.

Garcia-Serrano and Bercaw went to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus, with serious and moderate injuries respectively, Gray said.

The front-seat passenger in the Chrysler, Amparo Ramirez of Mays Landing, and the front-seat passenger in the Toyota, Betsy Garcia of Landisville, were both taken AtlantiCare's City Campus with moderate injuries, Gray said.

Hamilton Township, Egg Harbor Township and Atlantic City ambulances transported all the patients, police said. The Cardiff Volunteer Fire Co. assisted at the scene.

Delilah Road was shut down for about 2 hours between Black Horse Pike and English Creek Avenue with Hamilton Township Police Department assistance.

Summonses were issued for careless and failure to maintain lane to Garcia-Serrano. A summons was issued to Ramirez for failure to wear a seatbelt, Gray said.

The crash was investigated by Officer Thomas Rocco of the Egg Harbor Township Police Department traffic safety unit, police said.
