Once again, Route 130 in Burlington County has been named one of the state's deadliest roads for pedestrians.
According to a report from the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, nine people were killed on 130 from 2009-2011, including 39-year-old Kelly Reed, of Cinnaminson, who was struck and killed at Route 130 and Church Road in March 2011.
Reed's death was one of two fatalities along Route 130 in 2011. Three pedestrians were killed on the highway in 2009 and four in 2010, according to the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, a nonprofit advocacy organization that focuses on transportation.
Route 130's nine fatalities tie it with US‐322/40 (Blackhorse Pike, Albany Avenue) in Atlantic County and Route 1 in Middlesex County for the dubious distinction of being the state's most dangerous roadway. Route 130 has been consistently ranked as one of New Jersey's deadliest roads.
A total of 17 pedestrians were killed on Burlington County roads from 2009-2011, including two fatalities on Route 38. Three pedestrians were also killed in separate accidents in Delran (on Route 130) and Moorestown (near South Lenola Road and Camden Avenue).
Analysis from the Tri-State Transportation Campaign is based on data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System.
