Egg Harbor Township police car

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — A township man died from his injuries after he was struck Monday night on the Black Horse Pike in West Atlantic City.

Kamal Chand, 41, was on life support when doctors determined the crash left him brain dead, according to a GoFundMe page launched Thursday to raise money for funeral expenses.

About 11 p.m. Monday, township resident Andrew Conte, 81, was driving a van west near the Conoco gas station when he encountered Chand, who was in the road, police said.

Conte’s vehicle hit Chand in the outside lane, throwing him toward the shoulder, police said. Chand suffered serious injuries and was transported to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus.

The crash is being investigated by township police Officers Patrick Daly and James Ludwig. Anyone who may have witnessed the crash can call police at 609-926-2661.
