Egg Harbor, NJ – Delores McCreight Dies From Injuries Following Crash at Tilton Rd and Washington Ave

Egg Harbor, NJ (September 13, 2022) – A passenger involved in a car accident passed away from her injuries on Thursday, September 8th. 

80-year-old Delores McCreight, a resident of Northfield, was taken by ambulance to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center-City Division in life-threatening condition. 

The crash took place at about 3:35 p.m. in the area of Washington Avenue and Tilton Road in Egg Harbor Township when a 2012 Honda Fit, driven by 54-year-old Michelle Sanders, a resident of Pleasantville, was attempting to make a lefthand turn onto Uibel Avenue from Washington Avenue. At that time, a 2005 Ford F-350 pick-up truck, driven by local resident 30-year-old Nikko Franzen, was traveling southbound along Tilton Road toward Washington Avenue. 

As the Honda turned left in front of the Ford, the Ford crashed into its passenger side where McCreight was seated. The condition of the driver is unclear. 

The driver and passenger in the pick-up were unharmed during the impact. 

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Ms. Delores McCreight, at this time.

T-Bone Collisions in New Jersey

Egg Harbor, NJ - Delores McCreight Dies From Injuries Following Crash at Tilton Rd and Washington Ave

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that 40% of vehicle crashes take place in intersection collisions. The Department of Transportation reported that almost 7,000 intersections happen every year in New Jersey.  

While you might have been responsibly obeying all driving laws and moving cautiously and lawfully through an intersection or a four-way stop, a reckless, irresponsible motorist just plowed through, causing you and your car to endure extensive damages. 

Side-impact accidents are one of the most dangerous and unexpected vehicle collisions. Also known as a T-bone accident, side-impact crashes usually crush the passenger or driver’s side, meaning that between the victim’s vehicle and the striking vehicle, there is only a window and a door to absorb the impact. 

These kinds of accidents are often caused by drunk or distracted drivers or by a driver who simply is not concerned with the safety of others.  

Dissimilar to other kinds of accidents, where bumpers, heavy metal structures, a trunk, an engine, or seats offer something of a protective cushion, there is nothing to protect the victims of a side-impact collision.
