One man was transported to the hospital as a result of a multi-vehicle crash on the White Horse Pike in Collingswood Thursday afternoon.

First responders were called to the area near the intersection of Newton Avenue and the White Horse Pike shortly after 4 p.m.

There, an apparent collision between a blue Toyota Corolla and a silver Saturn Vue had left the Toyota with its front end smashed in and the Vue overturned on Newton Avenue.

Collingswood Fire Chief Geoff Joyce confirmed that a man who had been traveling in one of the vehicles, estimated to be in his 50s, was evacuated from the scene to a local hospital with minor injuries.

No official information is yet available from police about the crash.

The roadway in this area has been a frequent site of collisions both with vehicles and pedestrians.

In 2021, 66-year-old Drew Watson of Collingswood was killed by a driver as he was crossing the Pike at North Newton Lake Drive.

In 2019, an unidentified Collingswood woman was seriously injured under similar circumstances.

On September 14, 17-year-old Zachariah Foster became the fourth pedestrian to have been killed in a traffic crash in Camden County this year, and the 22nd victim of a fatal vehicle collision in the county.

In the three weeks since that incident, two more pedestrians and a driver have died in Camden County traffic crashes — in Barrington, Camden City, and Berlin Borough, respectively — according to New Jersey State Police records.
