Motor Vehicle Crash
On 03/25/2023 at approximately 1536 hours Berkeley Township police officers responded to the parking lot of 657 Route 9 for a report of a hit and run motor vehicle crash.
The caller reported that a dark grey pickup truck, apparently a 2008-2012 Ford F150 Super cab, hit a utility pole located at this location causing damages to the front drivers side of the bumper, and then sped away northbound on Route 9.
