A motorcycle crash has sent at least one person to Cooper University Hospital's trauma center and shut down the highway near West Deptford High School Monday afternoon.
The crash, which happened just after 3 p.m., closed down the left two lanes of the highway. A wrecked motorcycle and a helmet were lying in the roadway after the crash, and one eyewitness reported seeing blood on the median barrier.
Traffic was backed up on the northbound to south of Delaware Street following the crash.
Drivers can avoid the accident area by getting off Route 295 at the Delaware Street exit, then continuing to Old Crown Point Road, before getting back on Route 295 at either of the next two exits, either at the high school or north of Verga Fire Company.
