VIDEO: New Jersey Trooper Killed in Single-Car Crash

A New Jersey state trooper died in a single-vehicle crash Thursday morning while responding to a report of a juvenile in mental distress in rural Salem County, reports WPVI-TV.

Trooper Eli McCarson, 30, was traveling on Quinton-Alloway Road near the intersection of Route 49 when the accident happened around 10:45 a.m. in Quinton Township.

Witness Joe Fahrner tells Action News he was in his house across the street when he looked outside and saw the trooper's cruiser wrapped around a large high-voltage utility pole.

McCarson was trapped in his vehicle for a short time, police said, while rescuers worked to pry open the jammed doors.

He was taken to Salem Hospital where he was pronounced dead just after noon.

The cause of the crash is under investigation, but residents said the sharp curve at the accident scene has been the sight of numerous accidents during the years.
