The person who died was from Hazlet according to New Jersey.com. New Jersey.com reported near the time of the accident that six adults and three children were hurt in the crash. The aftermath of the accident, the subsequent rescue efforts, and police investigation forced the closure of the Garden State Parkway.

The out of control car struck a 2014 Honda Pilot going north on the Parkway. The collision demolished the two vehicles. Debris from the wreck struck another vehicle passing through the debris field.
The driver of the 2006 Jeep Cherokee that crossed into oncoming traffic was severely hurt in the crash. A med-flight helicopter transported him to a trauma center.
