Two Sicklerville women were killed in a single-vehicle crash Saturday night on Route 42 in Gloucester Township.

The driver, Lonae Moore, 20, and another occupant in the Cadillac CTS, Aniyah Gillespie, 21, were pronounced dead at the accident scene, said Sgt. Jeff Flynn of the New Jersey State Police. Three others were in the car; two of them suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to Cooper University Hospital in Camden.

Flynn said police responded to the scene at milepost 9.2 in the northbound lane of Route 42 at 9:23 p.m. He said the Cadillac ran off the right side of the road, struck several trees, then overturned.

The road was reopened Sunday morning. No other details were available, including whether alcohol or excessive speed were believed to have played a role in the crash.
