NJ Tow Truck Driver Hit On Atlantic City Expressway

Wishing 32-year-old Luis Perez a speedy recovery! Here's the story from Press of Atlantic City:

ATLANTIC CITY - A tow truck driver responding to an accident at 11:57 a.m. Sunday was struck by a Ford pickup truck at milepost 2 on the eastbound side of the Atlantic City Expressway, State Police said.

Luis Perez, 32, was in fair condition Sunday night at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus.

Police said the pickup truck driver, whose name was not available, apparently lost control of the vehicle. Conditions on the expressway were fairly clear, police said, but there were some sections with blowing snow and slush.

Another expressway crash happened at 5 p.m. Sunday, when an eastbound Chrysler 300 went off-road into the median at milepost 12 in Hamilton Township.

An unidentified passenger complained of chest pains and was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, Mainland Campus in Galloway Township, police said.
