Route 195 reopened in Hamilton after fatal accident investigation
HAMILTON — An investigation of a fatal accident closed Route 195 westbound before the start of the morning commute on Wednesday morning.
New Jersey State Police spokesman Trooper Alejandro Goez said Mohamad Charles, 38, of Darby, Penn was killed just before 5 a.m. when his Subaru Impreza, which was facing the wrong direction in the left lane because of an earlier crash in the westbound lanes, was struck head on by a Lexus GS300 driven by Floyd Wilmoth, 49, of Florence.
The westbound left lane was closed until around 8:15 a.m. between exit 5 for Route 130 and exit 3 for Hamilton Square Road in Hamilton creating an eastbound rubbernecking delay and westbound delays that started in Allentown. Traffic was diverted off at Route 130.
Wilmoth of the Lexus suffered "moderate" injuries and was hospitalized at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Hamilton while two passengers in the Subaru, Leasa Tourey, 36 and Dianetta Jones, 41, both of Darby were taken to Helene Fuld Medical Center in Trenton for injuries.
The investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed, according to Goez, who did not disclose the identities of those involved in the car.
