SOUTH BRUNSWICK — A father was killed after his son made what appears to have been an improper turn in front of a dump truck, officials said.

The crash happened Tuesday afternoon on Route 522.

The red sedan traveling east was struck about 12:30 p.m. when the driver made an improper left turn in front of the westbound truck at Kingston Lane, Deputy Police Chief James Ryan said.

The family is from South Brunswick but Ryan did not disclose their names. The son was hospitalized in critical condition. The teenage daughter was being treated for serious injuries.

Video of the crash shows the truck veering toward a bank parking lot after hitting the car. The top of the car had to be cut off in order to free the victims.

Helmetta Fire Chief Christopher Acs, of Jamesburg, was struck and killed July 12 while riding a motorcycle on Georges Road at Summerfield Boulevard. Maheshkum Kuniyil, 48, of the Dayton section of South Brunswick was issued two motor vehicle summons — failure to yield right of way at an intersection and for obstructing the passage of other vehicles.

On June 15, Dean Battaglia, 53, was fatally hit by a vehicle while he was doing work on the shoulder of Georges Road outside the Crossroads Middle School. Shamantha Bolla, 18, of the Monmouth Junction section, was charged with second-degree reckless death by auto.

A 40-year-old New Brunswick man was driving a 2011 Chevrolet Malibu north on Route 1 about 12:40 a.m. March 12 when it struck the rear of a tractor-trailer driven by a 56-year-old Somerset man.
