The accident occurred on Marlyn Avenue when vehicle number one, a white 2014 Hyundai Elantra operated by Anthony Tucci, 22, of Hammonton, was traveling west on Marlyn Avenue and impacted with vehicle numbers two and three, which were parked cars, Friel said.


“He was traveling west on Marlyn, lost control and impacted with vehicle two, a silver 2021 Toyota Tacoma, which was pushed into the front of vehicle number three, a green 2016 Ford F-250,” Friel said.
