One woman was killed and a man injured Wednesday when the car they were in crashed into a car and truck on Route 42 in Camden County, authorities said.
Ashley Zarzycki, 24, was a passenger in a Mazda 3 sedan driven by Matthew Britton, 26, when the car struck the left side of a Dodge Avenger, then rear-ended and became lodged under a tractor-trailer, according to New Jersey State Trooper Alejandro Goez.
Zarzycki and Britton, both of Lower Township, were girlfriend and boyfriend, according to social media posts.
The crash occurred at about 12:50 p.m. in the southbound lanes near Exit 55 in Deptford, just past the county line, authorities said.
Zarzycki died at the scene.
Britton was taken to Cooper University Hospital in Camden with “moderate injuries,” Goez said.
The other drivers were not hurt.
No charges were filed and the accident is under investigation, Goez said.
