A township man was flown to an area hospital Wednesday afternoon following a crash that ejected him from his scooter near the Manchester Plaza entrance.
Berkeley Township resident Arthur Hall, 92, was making a left turn from Route 70 east into the shopping plaza entrance when he collided with Walton Hathaway, 69, of Manchester, who was driving westbound on a 2011 Suzuki Burgman scooter, Manchester police Capt. Lisa Parker said in a statement.
"The impact of the crash caused Mr. Hathaway to be ejected from his vehicle," Parker said.
Hathaway was taken by helicopter to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune by MONOC paramedics for treatment following the 2:30 p.m. crash, according to Parker
A hospital spokesperson on Thursday afternoon said that Hathaway is listed in stable condition.
Hall was not injured in the crash, Parker said.
Westbound traffic along Route 70 was diverted for "several hours" by the state Department of Transportation while police investigated the crash, Parker said. It remains under investigation by the department's Traffic Safety Section.
Also assisting at the scene were the Manchester First Aid and Rescue Squad, Manchester Volunteer Fire Department, the township's Office of Emergency Management, Quality Medical Transport and All Shore Towing, Parker said.
The entrance last saw a major crash incident in March, when a Burlington County man flipped his motorcycle end-over-end as he tried to avoid a car making a left turn into the plaza from Route 70.
