State police: Man struck, killed by another vehicle while standing on shoulder of parkway
State police say a man standing outside a car stopped on the shoulder of the Garden State Parkway was struck and killed by another vehicle.
According to state police, John Carroll, 60, of Belmar, was struck Friday shortly before 10 p.m. in the right shoulder of the southbound local lanes, near milepost 115.9 in Holmdel.
Authorities haven't said if Carroll had been driving the car or why it was stopped in the shoulder.
State police say while Carroll was standing there, another vehicle entered the shoulder and struck him and the parked car, which was unoccupied.
The driver of the second vehicle, identified only as a 41-year-old Woodbridge Township man, wasn't hurt.
