ABSECON _ A Hammonton Father-in-law and his son-in-law are facing traffic and drug charges following a two-car accident that sent two people to an area hospital for treatment.

Rory M. Kebel, 25, and his father-in-law, Andy F. Coyle, 50, both of Hammonton, were arrested June 10 and charged with possession of heroin and drug paraphernalia, according to a statement issued by Absecon Police Sgt. Robert Ponzetti.

Kebel, the driver of the vehicle, was also charged with disregarding a stop sign, possession of a CDS in a motor vehicle and with having an outstanding warrant out of Hammonton.

Police said the vehicle Kebel was driving north on Haddon Avenue failed to yield the right of way and struck an eastbound vehicle on New Jersey avenue, police said. The impact forced Kebel’s vehicle into a telephone pole.

Cynthia Dupree, 55, of Pleasantville, the driver of the second vehicle, was transported to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center Mainland Campus for treatment.

Dupree was transported to the Atlanticare Regional Medical Facility, Mainland campus with injuries.

Cody was uninjured. Kebel began to complain of rib pain while at the police station and was then transported to the same hospital for treatment, police said.
