HAMMONTON—A four-vehicle crash occurred at 3:41 p.m. on March 16 at the intersection of the White Horse Pike (Route 30) and Basin Road, Hammonton Police Chief Kevin Friel said. Two people were transported to AtlantiCare Mainland for injuries sustained in the crash, Friel said.


“Police were dispatched in reference to an overturned motor vehicle crash,” Friel said.


Officer Travis Hoffman observed that there were four vehicles that were in the westbound lane, Friel said. A preliminary investigation showed that vehicle one, a gray 2020 Toyota 4Runner was traveling westbound at a high rate of speed, Friel said.


Friel said the 4Runner impacted the rear driver’s side tire of vehicle number two, a blue 2015 Jeep and then vehicle number two impacted with vehicle number three, a black 2021 Honda HR-V which was stopped at Basin Road for a school bus. Vehicle number three then impacted the rear bumper portion of vehicle number four, a silver 2012 Jeep Liberty, which was also stopped for the school bus, Friel said.


The driver of vehicle number one and vehicle number three were transported to AtlantiCare Mainland for treatment of injuries, Friel said.


A report with charges was pending at the time of the interview on Monday morning, Friel said.


Police made a number of warrant arrests last week, including the following, Friel said.


• On March 14 at 1:05 p.m., a warrant arrest was made at the intersection of Railroad Avenue and 12th Street, Friel said.


Officer Christopher Henshaw observed Antonio Quintero, 38, of Hammonton, who was known to have an NCIC warrant, Friel said.

Friel said that while he was in custody, Quintero had a medical emergency and was transported to AtlantiCare City Division, prior to being transported to the Atlantic County Jail.


Henshaw was the investigating and arresting officer, Friel said.

He was placed under arrest, transported to police headquarters and then was transported to be lodged in the Atlantic County Jail, Friel said.
