Motor vehicle crash

On 06/22/18 at approximately 12:26 hours, the Township of Hamilton Police Department responded to Millville Ave near the intersection with Pittsburg Ave for an overturned vehicle.  Investigation revealed that a 1994 Ford tri-axle dump truck driven by Ronald Forsyth, 54, of Woodbury, was traveling east on Millville Road loaded with fill dirt. The vehicle entered a bend at which point Forsyth lost control and overcorrected, ultimately causing the vehicle to overturn. The vehicle slid off of the roadway and in doing so dumped the load of fill dirt onto the roadway.  No injuries were reported.  The road was closed for approximately 3 ½ hours while the truck was recovered and the roadway cleared of debris. Assisting at the scene were the Township of Hamilton Rescue Squad, Mizpah Fire Company, Mays Landing Fire Company, and Atlantic County Public Works.  Further investigation is being conducted by Officer Rizzo and Officer Bauerband.
