The investigation by the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office is ongoing. No charges have been filed at this point against the driver, whose name is being withheld because he is a juvenile. He remains at Cooper University Hospital in Camden in critical but stable condition.

The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured.

The preliminary investigation revealed that the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed when it crashed into the rear of the tractor-trailer. The car had been previously reported as stolen out of Cinnaminson. Cinnaminson police had attempted to execute a traffic stop on the vehicle moments earlier, but the driver accelerated instead of pulling over.
