GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP — A 68-year-old township man was seriously injured last week after crashing an SUV into a telephone pole, police said Monday.

At 4:08 p.m. Dec. 23, officers went to South Pomona Road and Duerer Street for a report of a vehicle that struck a pole and overturned, police said in a news release. An initial report indicated the vehicle had left the road traveling north on Pomona Road.

When officers arrived, they found a 2014 Jeep Cherokee about 15 feet from the road, police said. The driver, James Ewing, was trapped inside the SUV and had to be extricated as the vehicle caught fire.

Ewing was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus in Atlantic City, with serious injuries, police said.

Officer Cody Trout is investigating. No summonses have been issued, police said.

The Stockton University Police Department, township EMS and the Germania, Pomona and Bayview volunteer fire companies also responded.

Anyone with information about the crash can call Trout at 609-652-3705, ext. 5117.
