GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP – Police in Gloucester Township are investigating a crash that occurred at around 2:56 am on Thanksgiving morning between a car and a box truck. When police arrived at the area of the Camden County Lakeland Complex, they found a sedan and box truck fully engulfed in flames in a parking lot near Woodbury Turnersville Road and Lakeland Road.

Neither vehicle was occupied, police reported. Police found a woman with serious injuries in a nearby pond.

“Officers began to check the area and located the adult female driver in an adjacent pond with what appeared to be serious injuries.” the GTPD said in a statement today. “Officers safely pulled the driver out of the water and she was immediately treated by EMS and Medics. She was then transported to Cooper Hospital for her injuries.”

An initial investigation by detectives determined that the driver exited the vehicle on her own and headed to the adjacent pond, possibly due to the vehicle catching fire.
