The man who died Monday night in a five-car crash on the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge was identified Wednesday as a 35-year-old Camden man, according to a statement from the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office.
Two cars were driving west towards Philadelphia when one car clipped the other, sending it into the eastbound lane, causing a head-on collision with a Honda Civic, the prosecutor’s office said. Five cars in total were involved, and the first two appeared to have been speeding.
The driver of the Honda Civic, Gerardo Francisco Perez Martinez, was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.
Five others were taken to the hospital with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening, authorities said.
The cause of the crash remained under investigation Wednesday evening.
