The driver of a crane truck that overturned on the northbound Garden State Parkway during Thursday (23rd June) morning’s commute has died after being partially ejected.

State Police Sgt. Alejandro said Scott Stadnik, 49, of Flemington was killed when the Freightliner M2 flipped across three right and centre lanes of the road near Exit 135 (Central Avenue) in Clark.

A 41-year-old man who was Stadnik’s passenger was not injured in the crash. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

The truck flipped over around 6:45 a.m. creating a backup that extended nearly 10 miles to the New Jersey Turnpike in Woodbridge. There was also a rubbernecking delay on the southbound lanes.

All lanes of the Parkway were reopened around 11:15 a.m. Thursday morning.

The cause and circumstances of the crash remain under investigation.
