Man, 64, dies in box truck crash in Warren County

BLAIRSTOWN TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – A Warren County man died after the box truck he was driving crashed in Blairstown Township earlier this month, Blairstown Township Police Chief Scott Johnsen told RNJ on Monday.

The crash happened on December 6, at around 1:46 p.m., on Route 94 and West Crisman Road, Johnsen said.

Through a police investigation, it was determined the box truck, driven by a 64-year-old Blairstown Township man, was traveling south on Route  94, crossed over into the northbound lane, collided with the end of the guardrail, and drove into the wet area of land causing the truck to stop, Johnsen said.

When officers arrived, the man was located and he was not breathing and did not have a pulse, Johnsen said.

Officers and members from Blairstown Hose Company #1 began CPR and patient care was then transferred to St. Lukes’s EMS and St. Claire’s Medics once they arrived on the scene, Johnsen said.

He was later pronounced dead, Johnsen said.
