Fiery Crash In Southern N.J. Kills 3 Marylanders

OLDMANS TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — Police say a car ran off Interstate 295 in southern New Jersey, crashed into a tree and burst into flames, killing three people and seriously injuring a 9-year-old boy.

Ron Matz reports.

State Police Sgt. Brian Polite says the crash happened just after 6 p.m. Monday in Oldmans Township, about 25 miles south of Philadelphia.

Three adults were trapped in the burning car and pronounced dead at the scene. Police identified them as Manuel Marshal, 24, of Cheverly, Md., Jessie Jones, 27, of Lanham, Md., and Arthur Briscoe, whose age and hometown weren’t immediately available.

Polite credited two bystanders with saving the life of Jones’ son, Hakeem, by pulling him from the car. The boy was flown to Philadelphia Children’s Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition with a broken femur.
