Two crashes in EHT both involved ignored stop signs, police say

  • News

Two crashes within two hours Wednesday were because drivers disregarded stop signs, police said.

The first crash happened at about 8:18 a.m. at Old Egg Harbor and Delancey roads.

Lindsay Lillemon, 36, of Mays Landing, was heading south on Delancey, and went through the stop sign, Capt. Cherie Burgan said.

Her Ford Escort was struck on the driver's side by Maribel Liddell's westbound Jeep Cherokee, according to the report.

Lillemon had to be extricated from her vehicle by firefighters.

She was treated and taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center's City Campus for serious injuries.

Her passenger, David Keasler of Pleasantville, and Liddell, 24, also of Pleasantville, were both taken to the hospital.

The road was shut down for about 90 minutes while the crash was investigated and cleared.

Just after 10 a.m., Patricia Gallagher was heading south on Cates Road, where she disregarded a stop sign and struck Michael Velez, who was heading west on West Jersey, Burgan said.

Gallagher, 84, of Mays Landing, was struck on the driver's side by Velez's front bumper, according to the report.

Velez, 66, of Somers Point, and his passenger, 38-year-old Michael Velez Jr., were treated at the scene, but refused transportation to the hospital.

Gallagher was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

"We would like to remind motorists to pay careful attention to traffic control devices and to always
minimize distractions while driving," Burgan said..
