MOUNT LAUREL — Police are investigating why the driver of a Dodge Charger stopped his car on a busy roadway Sunday morning, causing a crash that took the life of a Delaware man.

Sgt. Lawrence Peel of the New Jersey State Police said the crash happened at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning when the driver of the Charger, who was not identified, stopped his car in the left lane of Interstate 295 North. After the driver of the Charger got out of the vehicle Peele said a Pontiac sedan rammed into the unoccupied car.

Sgt. Peele said the driver of the Pontiac, 35-year-old Lloyd Hoxter of Dover Delaware, sustained serious injuries in the crash and was taken to Virtua Hospital. Hoxter was declared dead at the hospital.

The northbound lanes of the interstate were closed for close to two hours, according to Peele, while the southbound lanes were closed for around 30 minutes.

The investigation is ongoing, and Peele said the driver of the Charger is cooperating with the investigation.
