Mullica - Dump Trucks Collide





MULLICA TOWNSHIP – Nobody was injured when two dump trucks collided early Friday morning on Route 30 causing one of them to spill its load, police said.
When officers arrived about 3:25 a.m. to the area of Route 30 and 10th Avenue, they found an overturned dump truck that spilled its load of sand onto the road and in the parking lot of a local business, said Chief John Thompson Jr.

Aaron Donovan, of Galloway, was driving a Mack dump truck for E V Dump Truck Service out of Pomona when another dump truck, driven by Rasool Jones, of Camden, made an illegal turn in front of Donovan, causing them to collide, Thompson said.
Jones was driving for Mike and Son’s LLC out of Egg Harbor City and was cited for making an improper turn.

Nobody was injured in the collision, Thompson said.
Route 30 westbound was closed for more than three hours as crews worked to clean the sand. Battelini Towing turned the truck upright and removed it.

Mullica Twp Drag Racers



You’ll never catch Karen Stalba at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City or Morey’s Piers in Wildwood.
“I can’t ride roller coasters,” she said with a laugh. “They really upset my stomach.”
She’s much more at home at Atco Dragway.

The married Mullica Township mother of two may not be able to handle amusement rides, but she’s very good at climbing into a top alcohol dragster and roaring down a quarter-mile straightaway at more than 270 mph.
“When you get to that starting line, I feel a big rush all the way down to my feet,” Stalba said. “My heart beats so loud, I can hear it. It’s just such an amazing feeling.”
Stalba, 43, is not the only one who feels it in her family.
Her husband, Tom, 50, and even their 10-year-old son, Paul, spend most weekends in the spring and fall zooming down drag strips up and down the East Coast as the unofficial “first family” of drag racing.
“Our daughter Emily (7) hasn’t shown an interest in racing, yet,” Tom said with a smile. “But I wouldn’t be surprised if she joins us at some point.”
