An early morning accident in Stafford Township has claimed the life of a 27-year-old Waretown man.

Stafford Township Police say at approximately 6:48 AM Sunday, they responded to an accident on Nautilus Drive near Quadrant Road for the report of an accident.

Police say a vehicle driven by Thomas Ronacher left the road and crossed several lawns before striking two other vehicles and a tree. The accident resulted in fatal injuries for Ronacher.

Further investigation led police to determine the accident had occurred several hours earlier - probably between 2 and 2:30 AM. Several neighbors reported hearing a loud bang, although no one called police.

Police say with poor lighting in the area, with the location of where the car ended up resting, no one could see anything out of the ordinary.

Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the accident to contact Traffic Safety Officer Justin Pascale at (609) 597-1189 X8436.
