Two killed, four injured in Atlantic City Expressway accident

Posted: June 22, 2014

Six people were injured - two fatally - when they were thrown from a pickup truck that struck a guardrail on the Atlantic City Expressway and rolled over Friday morning, state police said. One of the dead was a 4-year-old boy.

The crash occurred shortly after 7 in the westbound lanes in Hamilton Township, Atlantic County. No other vehicles were involved.

James Dennis, 35, a passenger inside the truck, was killed. The driver, Roselyn Kornegay, 45, and the 4-year-old were also inside and were taken to Cooper University Hospital, where the boy died about 3:30 p.m. Kornegay was in critical condition.

The other three passengers were sitting in the truck's bed. They were taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center by helicopter and ambulance.

State police identified them as Dion Kornegay, 20; Brian Gregory, 19; and Shaniqua Abrams, 18. One had serious injuries and the other two had non-life-threatening injuries, state police said. All six are from Philadelphia.

The westbound lanes were shut down for several hours Friday morning.

State police said investigators were still determining what caused the white Ford pickup to strike the rail and flip, and charges would be pending the outcome of the investigation.
