Hamilton Crash

One person was taken to the hospital after a two-car crash Sunday on the Black Horse Pike.

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP – A 21-year-old man was taken to the hospital Sunday after a two-car accident that slowed traffic on the Black Horse Pike near Shoshoni Drive, according to police.

Dominick Lopez, 21, of Williamstown, Gloucester County, was driving west on the Black Horse Pike about 5:30 p.m. when his vehicle was struck by a westbound car driven by a 17-year-old male. Police said the teen lost control of his car and crossed the center lane because of slippery conditions.

Lopez was taken to the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center for treatment of injuries from the crash. The 17-year-old was issued a summons for careless driving, police said.

Both drivers were wearing seatbelts and traffic on the Black Horse Pike was diverted for about 30 minutes while the area was cleared.
