Only minor injuries were reported from a crash at the Black Horse Pike and Tilton Road in Egg Harbor Township Wednesday morning.

Egg Harbor Township Police say their officers responded to the intersection at about 9:45 AM. According to a press release posted to Facebook, a 2000 Nissan Xterra being driven by 64-year-old Marleny Taborda of EHT was traveling east on the Black Horse Pike at Tilton Road when her vehicle was hit by a 2020 Ram Pro-master Van being driven by 75-year-old Edwin Watts of Somers Point.

Police say the impact of the collision caused the Nissan to overturn, coming to rest on the passenger side on the concrete median. Numerous motorists rushed to the vehicle and helped Taborda out until EMTs arrived.

Taborda sustained minor injuries and was treated at the scene; she was taken to Shore Medical Center for further evaluation. Watts was not injured in the crash.

A preliminary investigation found that Watts was making a left turn onto the westbound Black Horse Pike when Taborda disregarded the red light, causing the accident.

Any witnesses to the accident are urged to contact the Egg Harbor Township Police Department's Traffic Safety Unit at (609) 926-4045.
