HAMMONTON—A 16-year-old juvenile, whose name was not released by Hammonton Police Chief Kevin Friel, was airlifted to Cooper Trauma Center after being taken to AtlantiCare Satellite Emergency Department for treatment of injuries sustained in an accident on April 6, Friel said. The accident, involving a motor vehicle hitting the juvenile pedestrian, occurred at the location of 12th and Grand Streets, Friel said.


“Police received a 911 call of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle at 3:12 p.m. on April 6,” Friel said.


The vehicle was traveling southbound on 12th Street and the pedestrian attempted to cross from the west to the east side and was struck in the southbound lane, Friel said.


The driver, Allyssa Shepardson, 28, of Clayton, was operating a white 1999 Mercury Marquis, Friel said.


Friel said the pedestrian was transported to the AtlantiCare Satellite Emergency Department by ambulance and airlifted to Cooper Trauma Center, Friel said.


Cpl. Jay Pinto is the investigating officer, Friel said, adding there were no charges against Shepardson at this time.
