The Westville Lions Club building was hit by a car
(Gloucestercitynews.net)(Westville, NJ)(July 16, 2019)—Last Thursday, around 1:30AM, a car coming from Almonesson Road onto Delsea Drive (Rt 47) struck a telephone pole and a road sign breaking both in half. The driver of the car continued another 25 feet before coming to a stop after hitting the storage area of the Westville Lions Club building, located at the Thomas West park. The condition of the driver and the passenger is not known.
A Lions Club member said the storage area of the club was totally demolished. "All of the equipment that we had housed in that part of the building was ruin. As for the cost to re-build the room and to replace the equipment it is not known at this time. We heard the driver of the car didn't have insurance but that hasn't been confirmed. We also heard that he was released from the hospital. The Lions Club doesn't own the building the borough does."
Westville Police Chief William Whinna said,"The crash is still under investigation. Two people were in the vehicle and were transported to Cooper for injuries. We do not have the cost of damage yet to the building."
The names of the driver and passenger were not released to the media.
