A pickup truck driver who died in a head-on Warren County crash has been identified by New Jersey State Police as a 19-year-old Florida man.
Robert Johnston, of Fort Lauderdale, was behind the wheel of a Dodge Ram when he crossed into the eastbound lanes of Route 46, hitting a GMC Sierra towing a Coachmen Camper head on around 11:05 p.m. Sunday near milepost 13.6 in Liberty Township, Sgt. Lawrence Peele said.
Johnston's front seat passenger, the GMC driver, the GMC front seat passenger and left rear GMC passenger were all injured, Peele said. The only passenger who sustained non life-threatening injuries was the rear passenger of the GMC, everyone else had serious injuries, Peele said.
All were transported to area hospitals, Peele said.
Medical helicopters including Atlantic Air One, Hackensack UMC AirMed One and New Jersey State Police NorthStar arrived to transport the three seriously-injured patients to hospitals, initial reports say.
Route 46 was shut between Pequest Furnace Road and near Querby Mountain Road for five hours.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
