Corrections officer killed when auto strikes rear of his stopped auto

An off-responsibility county corrections officer was killed Sunday when a auto slammed into his stopped vehicle on the shoulder of Route 55 in Vineland.

Joshua Beardsworth, 25, of Pittsgrove Township, was traveling northbound when he stopped his automobile on the ideal shoulder of the highway, according to a New Jersey Point out Law enforcement spokesman. Police have not said why he stopped.

A northbound automobile driven by a 27-yr-old male from Lansdale, Pennsylvania, struck the rear of Beardsworth’s automobile just right after 7:30 p.m.

Beardsworth was pronounced useless at a healthcare facility, police mentioned.

The other driver was hospitalized with really serious injuries.

The crash continues to be less than investigation and no costs had been filed as of Tuesday early morning.

Beardsworth was a married father of two, in accordance to his obituary, and worked as a corrections officer with the Camden County Juvenile Detention Centre.

“The commissioners are heartbroken to listen to about the decline of Josh Beardsworth,” Camden County Commissioner Jonathan Young stated in a assertion on Tuesday. “We have been notified this early morning and our ideas and prayers go out to his wife and younger young children. We are unable to get started to think about the ache they are going through in this tragic moment.

“From his co-personnel at the facility to the director of corrections for the county, we will do whatever we can to support the Beardsworths via this inexplicable reduction,” Youthful stated.

Funeral solutions are scheduled for Friday.
