A Bridgeton man, a 19-year-old New Jersey civilian police officer, was fatally injured while driving to work Friday morning.

62-year-old Daryl “Skip” Akers died in a head-on crash shortly before 6:15 a.m. on Highway 206 in Southampton, state police said.

Akers, who also played youth sports in Cumberland County, was driving north when a pickup truck moving south crossed the center line and crashed into his Jeep SUV, police said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene around 18.3.


An unnamed second driver was taken to the district hospital with serious injuries.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Akers, a senior public safety telecom, has served as a coach for many new employees, the state police said in a Facebook post announcing his death.

He was also a training instructor, CPR instructor and assisted in the certification of public safety telecommunications, it added.
