WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — State police say one person has died after being ejected from their vehicle during a crash on the Garden State Parkway in northern New Jersey.
But the cause of the two-vehicle crash in Washington Township remains under investigation.
The crash occurred around 11 a.m. Sunday in a northbound lane near milemarker 168. The ejected person, whose name was not released, was flown to a hospital but died there a short time later.
It was not immediately clear if the person killed was a driver of one of the vehicles involved in the accident or a passenger. No other injuries were reported.
The accident and the subsequent investigation closed all but one lane of the highway in the area for several hours Sunday afternoon.
