A 2016 Honda CRV operated by a 75-year-old Delaware woman, stopped in the left lane, was struck by the cars on impact, police said.

The Mazda and Nissan drivers were seriously injured, and airlifted by Hackensack Medical & Robert Wood Johnson to Atlantic City Trauma Center.

Westbound traffic on Route 72 was diverted onto E. Bay Avenue for approximately 1 hour during the investigation.
