A boy was killed in an accident involving multiple children on Route 55 in South Jersey Wednesday night.
Five people, including at least three children, were involved in the crash in the northbound lanes of the highway in Cumberland County just before midnight, county 911 dispatchers said.
It was unclear how many vehicles were involved, but officials closed the northbound and southbound lanes for hours, with three Medivac helicopters landing in the southbound lanes for the victims of airlift, dispatchers said.
Investigators did not immediately reveal the condition of the other victims. State police said the investigation into the crash is ongoing.
