Several Kids Injured in Van Accident on Atlantic City NJ Highway

A van collided with a car on a highway in Atlantic City NJ and resulted in injuries to 11 people.

The motor vehicle accident occurred just before 6:00 p.m. on Route 30 near Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The van was reportedly being driven by a 24-year-old Trenton NJ man and had nine passengers on board. At some point while traveling east on Route 30, the van collided with a car that was reportedly headed south on Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard.

A total of 11 people sustained injuries in the car accident. Among the 11 auto accident victims were five children. All of the car accident victims were taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City NJ, where they were treated for their injuries and subsequently hospitalized for overnight care. According to hospital officials, all of the victims are expected to survive.

At this time, it is unclear what might have caused the collision on the Atlantic City highway. The Accident Investigations Section of the Atlantic City Police Department is actively investigating the car crash and trying to determine exactly what happened.

The driver of the car involved in the crash is a 49-year-old man who resides in Rochester, New York. At this time, he has not been cited for any traffic violations by Atlantic City police. However, the driver of the van was issued several traffic tickets because he allegedly has a suspended driver’s license and he reportedly failed to properly use child restraints for at least five of the kids on board the van.
