A Wakefield woman died on Friday from injuries caused by a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Camp Parkway and Delaware Road. Southampton County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Maj. Gene Drewery reported that the department got the call at approximately 5:42 o’clock. Also responding were the Franklin Fire and Rescue, Hunterdale Volunteer Fire Department and Southampton Towing.

He reported that the crash involved two vehicles, a Chevrolet pickup headed eastbound driven by Justin Croak, 43, of Capron, and an Acura sedan driven by Emma Newsom, 31, Wakefield, who was headed southbound.
