    One man was killed and another was injured during a series of events that started when a deer struck a car on the Garden State Parkway in southern New Jersey.
     
    State police say 21-year-old Kyle Wands of Lakehurst was southbound in the center lane near milemarker 87.5 in Toms River when the deer struck the passenger side of his car just before 1 a.m. Wednesday.
     
    Wands stopped in the roadway and got out of his vehicle, but he was soon struck by another car driven by 25-year-old Anthony Labella of Howell Township. Wands was knocked to the side of the road, while Labella was ejected from his vehicle.
     
    Both men were taken to a hospital, where Wands was pronounced dead a short time later. Labella was in serious condition.
