A Jersey City man was killed and two of his passengers were injured when the vehicle they were riding in struck a tree along the Garden State Parkway in Atlantic County on Sunday, authorities said.
The wreck occurred shortly before 5 p.m. on the highway’s northbound side, near milepost 38.1 in Egg Harbor Township, according to Trooper Charles Marchan, a spokesman for the New Jersey State Police. A Chevrolet was headed north when it went off the highway and crashed into a tree.
The Chevrolet driver, Jacquim Lovely, 38, was killed, the spokesman said. Two others – a 42-year-old woman and a 41-year-old man, both of Jersey City – were hurt.
An investigation was ongoing, according to the State Police. More information was not immediately released late Sunday.
