A woman died in a collision with a tractor trailer just past the Pleasantville toll plaza heading towards Atlantic City Tuesday afternoon, State Police confirmed.
Police responded to mile marker 4.1 at 2:48 p.m. Kenneth Loux, of Belmawr, was driving a tractor trailer in the right lane of the two EZ-Pass express lanes when Noreen Green, 72, of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, who was driving a Chevrolet Blazer in the left lane of the non-express toll lanes, attempted to "travel across the express lanes to make a U-turn," according to Sergeant Jeff Flynn. The American Way U.S. Mail tractor trailer struck the driver's side of the Blazer.
Noreen Green was transported to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus, where she was pronounced dead. Her husband, Raymond, 72, and two minors in the car, ages 4 and 5, all sustained non-life threatening injuries.
The EZ-Pass express lanes were closed for about four hours, Flynn said.
