Two Toms River men were killed Sunday afternoon in a crash on the northbound Garden State Parkway.
State Police Sgt. Alejandro Goez said a Chevrolet Equinox driven by Jerome Digiovanni, 75, was stopped at 1:30 p.m. in the right shoulder and right travel lane near Exit 98 (Route 195/Route 34) in Wall.
Digiovanni and Ronald Devingo, 57, were standing outside the vehicle when they were struck by a Jeep Wrangler driven by Christopher Mulholland, 24, of Belmar. The Wrangler flipped over. Devingo was a passenger in the Equinox.
Digiovanni and Devingo were pronounced dead at the scene, according to State Police. Mulholland sustained minor injuries.
Goez said the reason the Equinox was stopped remained under investigation on Monday.
Two right lanes were closed for over two hours for a preliminary investigation.
It was the 35th fatal crash on the Garden State Parkway in 2022 and the 6th in Ocean County.
