The town of Moorestown, NJ, was ranked as the best place to live in 2005 by Money magazine. This week it suffered a horrible tragedy as two of its high school seniors died in separate car accidents one week apart. The latest happened Friday night when a car went over the center line of Route 38 in Burllington County and killed the teen, who was a passenger in the car that was struck. The driver, a 2007 graduate, is in critical condition. The driver of the car who caused the accident will probably face criminal proceedings by the Burlington County Prosecutor. The latest car crash happened on the same day as memorial services were being held for another teen who was killed last week in another car crash. Counselors will be on hand at the high school on Monday to help the grief-stricken students cope with the loss of two of their friends.
