Egg Harbor Police said in a statement Monday that they are investigating the crash alongside the Atlantic County Prosecutors Office.

Through their preliminary investigation, Egg Harbor Police learned that Michael Doyle, 31, of Tuckerton was heading eastbound in a 2003 Honda CRV on the Black Horse Pike when he ran a red light at English Creek Avenue as 33-year old Anthony Swezeny of Egg Harbor Township was trying to cross the road around 8:25 am.

He sustained multiple traumatic injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Doyle then struck a 2021 Chevy van driven by Joseph Avellino, 59, of Egg Harbor Township which had been heading south on English Creek at the time.

Avellino did not reportedly suffer any injuries.

Doyle and his passenger, Brittney Trapp, 28, of Tuckerton, were injured in the crash and were treated at the scene by AtlantiCare paramedics, the Egg Harbor Township Ambulance Squad and transported to AtlantiCare City Division.
