At 11:23 p.m., a Lincoln passenger vehicle traveling east on Route 78 in Greenwich Township entered the right shoulder and crashed into the back of an international tractor semi-trailer, Jeffrey Lebron, a spokesman for the New Jersey State Police, said.

The driver and a 12-year-old child in the backseat were killed, Lebron said. Three other passengers, including a 6-year-old boy and a 9-month old girl were airlifted to a nearby hospital, Lebron said.
