Two Injured in Single Car Crash; Passengers Fled Scene

On June 18, 2015 at approximately 12:36PM, the Absecon Police Department responded to a single car motor vehicle crash that occurred on the Delilah Road on-ramp just west of Route 30. The vehicle, a 2004 Ford Taurus, was operated by Glenn Lowe of Bridgeton, NJ. 

The initial investigation revealed the operator lost control of the vehicle as he negotiated the ramp. The vehicle ran off the roadway and struck the guardrail attenuator. The impact caused the vehicle to spin, which later came to rest in the embankment. 

The operator and front seat passenger were extricated from the vehicle by the Atlantic City Fire Department. Both were transported to AtlantiCare – City Division, for non-life threatening injuries. 

Investigators later learned from witnesses that the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed prior to the crash. Two additional passengers of the vehicle, a male and female, were observed fleeing the scene prior to the arrival of patrol. Anyone that can assist investigators in the identification of those individuals are urged to contact police. 

The Delilah Road on ramp was closed for approximately three hours while the crash was investigated. The accident is being investigated by Ptl. C. Cavileer #843 and Ptl. J. Mazer #851 of the Traffic Safety Unit. 

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash or may have any information can contact the Absecon Police Department at 609-641-0667.
