The volunteer fire companies of Cardiff and Bargaintown were dispatched to the intersection of the Black Horse Pike and Tower Avenue on June 19, 2020, at 1716, for an MVA with entrapment. Cardiff Chief Gil Zonge arrived and established command for a two-car MVA with one occupant entrapped in a passenger vehicle and no entrapment in vehicle two, a pickup truck. Command asked Bargaintown Chief Eugene Sharpe to establish the LZ at the nearby English Creek Shopping Center. Crews did a door removal and extracted the lone occupant. She was then transported to the LZ and flown to the trauma center where she was pronounced. The cause of the crash was investigated by the Egg Harbor Township Police Fatal Accident Investigation team and investigators from the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office.
