14-Year-Old Boy Second Teen Victim of Fatal Vineland Crash in 2 Weeks
Posted on Dec 13, 2013
Police have confirmed that a teenaged boy was killed in a Vineland car accident with a parked vehicle on November 11, 2013.
According to the police report, 14-year-old Jermire Lowery was riding as a passenger in a 2004 Chevrolet Malibu that was traveling east on Almond Road when the driver lost control of the car. The Malibu rammed into a truck parked off the side of the road near the Mill Road intersection at around 7:45 p.m.
Police responded to the accident scene shortly before 8:00 p.m. Emergency crews have said that Lowery sustained serious injuries in the crash, and he was transported to Inspira Medical Center Vineland, where he later succumbed to his injuries.
The driver of the car was also a teenager, a 17-year-old Vineland resident. There were three other juvenile passengers in the vehicle, all of whom were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. It is unclear if any of the car’s occupants were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash.
Lowery is the second teenaged victim to suffer a fatal Vineland crash in the last two weeks. On October 30, 14-year-old Alexa Strittmatter was struck by a car while crossing Main Road and later died of her injuries.
No charges have been filed in the accident that caused Lowery’s death, although the accident is still under investigation.
Our New Jersey car crash attorneys and staff wish to extend their deepest condolences to the family and friends of these young victims as we keep them in our thoughts and prayers.
