STAFFORD TOWNSHIP, N.J. - A Gloucester County mother and daughter were killed in a weekend crash on the Garden State Parkway that also injured four children and two other adults, state police said Sunday.
The accident occurred around 2:45 p.m. Saturday near milemarker 63.6 in a southbound lane in Stafford Township.
Authorities said a car driven in the right lane of the highway by Naoma Johnson, 45, apparently entered the center lane and struck a pickup truck. The collision sent both cars careening off the left side of the highway.
Johnson and her 70-year-old mother, Frances Hill, both of Washington Township, were pronounced dead at the scene. Two 14-year-old passengers in Johnson's car - a boy and a girl sitting in the back seat - were flown by helicopter to a hospital, where they were being treated for undisclosed injuries.
