WINSLOW TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A head-on crash involving an SUV and a New Jersey Transit access link bus has left the SUV driver dead and four people injured.

The crash in Winslow Township occurred around 5:30 a.m. Friday on Cross Keys Road and Oakland Avenue. Authorities say the SUV apparently crossed into oncoming traffic and struck the bus, part of a fleet used to transport people with disabilities.

The SUV driver, 28-year-old Howard Markee of Clementon, had to be extricated from the vehicle and was flown to a hospital. He was pronounced dead there a short time later.

The bus driver, 54-year-old Carlos Sanguinetti of Philadelphia; his passenger, 43-year-old Clarence Bailey of Sicklerville, and two passengers in the SUV — 28-year-old Amanda Wolford and a 16-year-old juvenile, both of Clementon, were all taken to the hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.
