LITTLE EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – A Hudson County man was killed early Monday morning after the car he was driving crashed into a tree off the Garden State Parkway, New Jersey State Police said.
Shortly before 3:15 a.m., a Chevrolet Cavalier being driven by Ryan Steel, 25, of Kearny, was traveling south on the Garden State Parkway when it left the roadway near milepost 57.1 in Little Egg Harbor Township and struck a tree, State Police spokesman Sgt. Gregory Williams said.
A preliminary investigation determined that Steel was traveling in the left southbound lane when he left the right side of the roadway for unknown reasons and struck a tree, Williams said.
Steel sustained undisclosed severe injuries and was unresponsive when first responders arrive, Williams said, he was pronounced dead at the scene at 4:55 a.m. by a doctor from the Ocean County Medical Examiner’s Office.
The Little Egg Harbor Township Fire Department, EMS and EMT squads, as well as the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office and the New Jersey State Police’s fatal accident and crime scene south units responded to the scene.
Next of kin was notified by the Kearny Police Department, Williams said.
The cause of the accident was still under investigation as of Monday afternoon.
