Pennsylvania Man Dies as Another Driver Strikes Disabled Car Along Busy New Jersey Interstate

Police divert traffic from I-195 in Hamilton Township

State police say a Pennsylvania man died in a crash that closed a section of an interstate in New Jersey for more than three hours.

Authorities say 37-year-old Mohamed Charles of Darby, Pennsylvania, was involved in an earlier crash and his vehicle became disabled in the left lane of Interstate 195 in Hamilton Township on Wednesday morning.

Another car driven by a 49-year-old Florence man struck the vehicle, killing Charles and injuring his two passengers from Darby.

The other driver sustained minor injuries.

The westbound lanes of I-195 were closed for hours near the Route 130 exit.

The crash is under investigation.
