The 22-year-old man from Gloucester County was driving a Chevrolet Cobalt west on Straughns Mill Road when his car collided with a Ford F-450  truck also traveling west, said Trooper Alejandro Goez, a New Jersey State Police spokesman.

Harrison Smith of Logan Township had to be extricated from his vehicle by first responders and was taken to Crozer-Chester Medical Center in Upland, Pennsylvania, with what were described as serious injuries, Goez said.

The truck driver was not hurt, but a passenger sustained minor injuries, Goez said.

The two-vehicle crash, which occurred at 2:19 p.m. near the Interstate 295 interchange, remains under investigation, Goez said.
