Survivor of Parkway crash killed while crossing lanes

KENILWORTH - A 21-year-old Riverside man survived a crash on the Garden State Parkway early this morning, only to be killed as he tried to cross several lanes of the highway afterward.

State police tell The Star Ledger that Luis Sarmiento was found dead in the left southbound lane of the Parkway in Kenilworth at around 12:45 a.m.

State police spokesman Sgt. Adam Grossman says the victim was struck by two vehicles.

A preliminary investigation shows Sarmiento left his car shortly after the accident and climbed over the center median to try to run across the southbound lanes.

Authorities spoke to the drivers of the vehicles that hit him, but no charges were immediately filed. The case remains under investigation.

AP wire services contributed to this report.
