2 Dead After Vehicle Is Pushed Into Lake

2 Dead After Vehicle Is Pushed Into Lake A deadly two-car crash left two people dead after their car was pushed into a lake in Burlington County.

Officials say the crash took place around 4:30 p.m. Saturday at the Northbound jug handle of Route 130 headed towards Bridgeboro Road.

Authorities say a two-door sedan driven by Amish Patel, 29, of Delanco, entered the jug handle, lost control, and crashed into a minivan waiting to cross over Route 130.

Investigators say the force of the impact propelled the minivan over the guard rail and down an embankment, where it submerged into a body of water that is part of Olympia Lakes.

Multiple rescue squads and fire departments were involved in pulling the occupants, Robert Stephens, 52, and his wife Janet, 50, of Burlington Township, from the water.

Investigators say life-saving efforts were unsuccessful, and Robert and Janet would later be pronounced dead Saturday night at Lourdes Medical Center in Willingboro.

Officials with the Prosecutor’s Office and the Willingboro Township Police Department are investigating the collision.

Authorities say no charges have been filed, and the investigation will focus on whether criminal behavior was responsible for the collision and the subsequent deaths.

Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to call Burlington County Central Communications at 609-265-7113.
