The Press of Atlantic City reports 14-year-old Aisling Cooke of Linwood died Wednesday.

Cooke and the other Mainland Regional High School students were going to compete in a charity tournament when the crash occurred Saturday morning on Route 40 in Hamilton Township. The other girls were treated and released from a hospital.

Authorities have said an eastbound pickup truck driven by 39-year-old Nicholas Gareffi of Vineland apparently crossed the center lane. The truck struck a westbound box truck and then hit a car driven by 18-year-old Madelyn Williscroft of Linwood.

Police say Williscroft’s actions as a driver saved the lives of the other passengers.
