A Vineland man was injured after his pickup truck crashed Monday night on the Atlantic City Expressway, State Police said.

At 7:29 p.m., troopers responded to the expressway’s westbound lanes for a crash at milepost 26.5 before the Hammonton exit, Lt. Ted Schafer said. There, they found a “severely damaged” 1998 Ford F-150, which had crashed into the median and overturned five times.

The driver and only occupant of the truck, James Wilson Jr., 43, was transported to Cooper University Hospital in Camden by AtlantiCare paramedics.

The crash is under investigation.

Fire departments from Hamilton Township and Hammonton also responded.
