A Mays Landing man has been charged in connection to a crash that happened earlier this year that seriously injured a Hamilton Township Police Officer.

On the night of March 2nd, a Hamilton Township police officer was blocking traffic on the Black Horse Pike at Route 50 due to wires down on the roadway. A car being driven by 22-year-old Isaiah Rasul Muhammad Smith of Mays Landing crashed into the officer's vehicle.
