More charges may be pending against a Cherry Hill man who was driving drunk in a fatal car accident on Route 295 in West Deptford last week, New Jersey State Police said Monday.

Mohammad Khan, 21, was at the wheel of a Toyota Camry that smashed into a Hyundai Accent just before midnight near mile marker 22.6, killing Mary Campbell, 32, of Pennsville, police said.

Khan has already been charged with driving while intoxicated, but the crash is still under investigation and could lead to additional counts, Sgt. Brian Polite said.

"Other charges may be pending," he said Monday.

While Campbell was the only one killed in the crash, two others in the Hyundai were injured, police said.

Along with Campbell in the car’s back seat was David Jones, 28, of Pennsville, who suffered multiple injuries when he was trapped in the car following the crash and had to be cut free, police said.

Front-seat passenger Dawn Modell, 27, of Deepwater, NJ, was also injured. She and Jones were both taken by ambulance to Cooper University Hospital in Camden, where Campbell had been airlifted immediately after the crash, police said.

Jones and Modell both survived their injuries; Modell was released after being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, and Jones remains in the hospital in stable condition, according to Cooper spokeswoman Lori Shaffer.

The Hyundai’s driver, David Hewitt, 41, of Carney’s Point, was uninjured in the wreck, police said.
