North Jersey woman killed in crash after ‘American Idol’ audition
Police say a North Jersey woman was killed and five others were injured in a car crash in Bucks County after attending "American Idol" auditions.
The crash occurred shortly before 7 p.m. Sunday on Interstate 95 just north of Route 1 in Lower Makefield Township. Police say Natasha Bellott of Bloomfield, who had just turned 20, was traveling home from the audition at Temple University's Liacouras Center in Philadelphia.
Police say the woman killed still had her "American Idol" ticket in her pocket.
Pennsylvania State Police say the driver of the Jeep carrying the group, a 17-year-old female from Belleville, was traveling at a high rate of speed when she passed a car on the right shoulder and lost control, veering across the two northbound lanes and rolled over on the median.
Three passengers were ejected from the vehicle, and fire officials described some of the surviving victims' injuries as serious. The other passengers in the car are identified as Carl Delpolito, 24, of Bloomfield, Leslie McCoy, 19, of Montclair, Jacob Gorski, 18, of East Orange and a 16-year-old girl from Bloomfield.
The victims were taken to hospitals in Bucks County and Trenton. Pennsylvania State Police ask any witnesses to the incident call 215-942-3900.
