Four people were killed Saturday night when a car struck a utility pole in South Jersey, authorities said.
Westville Police Chief William Whinna confirmed the single-car collision in town to NJ Advance Media early Sunday morning.
Police officials later confirmed the crash took place after 9 p.m. in front of Pellegrino Chevrolet, 1000 Gateway Blvd., just off I-295. A video from ABC6 Action News showed a badly damaged vehicle, that appeared to be smashed from all sides.
Further details of the incident or identities of victims were not immediately available. The crash remains under investigation.
By 9 a.m. Sunday morning, the crash had largely been cleaned up, leaving behind only a few shards of broken glass, fluid stains on the pavement and skid marks for a few hundred feet leading up to the pole.
