    A man is dead and another in jail after a car accident in East Greenwich Township, New Jersey.

    Police say a driver and three passengers were inside a Ford Explorer traveling on E. Wolfert Station Road Saturday night in the Mickleton section of the town. Suddenly the driver lost control of the vehicle which rolled over several times before coming to a stop. A passenger was ejected during the accident. He was found several hundred feet away from the Ford Explorer by responding officers. He was taken by helicopter to Cooper Hospital where he was pronounced dead around 12:34 a.m. on Sunday. Police have not yet revealed his identity.

    Police say the three other men were also found outside the vehicle though they were not seriously hurt. The driver, a 34-year-old man who police have not completely identified, was arrested for being under the influence of alcohol. Police say the man has several aliases and was charged with Assault by Auto, Death by Auto, DWI and several motor vehicle violations. His vehicle had fake tags on it and was not registered or insured, according to investigators. After being treated at Cooper Hospital, he was lodged in the Gloucester County Jail with bail set at $500,000. Police say they will not release his name until they confirm his identity.
