Evesham crashes send 7 to hospitals


Inquirer staff writer Dwight Ott reports:

Seven people were injured in a seven-car collision on Route 73 in Marlton near the intersection with Route 70, police said.

The victims were taken to area hospitals, including Cooper University Medical Center in Camden and Virtua Cherry Hill, according to Evesham police Capt. Jeff Gural.

"None of the injuries were life threatening," he said.

The accidents, which happened around 7 a.m., tied up traffic for more than two hours.

According to Gural, the series of crashes began when a northbound car on Route 73 struck another northbound vehicle, sending one of the cars into southbound lanes, leading to several accidents.

The accident was still under investigation, he said.
