WOOLWICH — A Pennsylvania man who crossed the New Jersey Turnpike on foot after losing control of his motorcycle was struck and killed Thursday night.

State Police Trooper Charles Marchan said Andrew M. Aaron, 48, of Glenolden, Pennsylvania hit a guardrail and wound up in the left shoulder near Exit 2 in Woolwich around 9:50 p.m. Aaron got up and crossed the two lanes of the road and was struck in the right lane by a Lexus.

The driver of the Lexus was hospitalized for further evaluation, according to Marchan.
