The Mercer County prosecutor’s office says 38-year-old Daniel C. Everett of Westampton faces second-degree death by auto and other charges in a collision that killed 59-year-old James McLean of Trenton.

Prosecutors say Everett allegedly hit McLean’s car at a Lawrence intersection and pushed it more than 200 feet into a park and then into a lake. Rescuers say the dump truck was in the water on top of the submerged vehicle.

Authorities said Friday Everett remains hospitalized with accident-related injuries. Bail has been set at $250,000. It’s not immediately known if he has an attorney.
