Susan Parker of Jackson was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said
WALL TOWNSHIP — A Jackson woman was killed Friday morning when her car ran off the side of the road and flipped over in a crash that shut down the highway for two hours in Wall Township.
Susan Parker, 69, was pronounced dead at the scene of the single-car crash on Route 138 in front of the I.B.E.W Local 400 Union Hall where her car came to a stop after running off the road, said Wall Township police Lt. Chad Clark.
Clark said Parker was driving a 2007 Toyota Yaris east on the highway around 9:10 a.m. when she ran off the right side of the road and went about 100 yards before she hit small trees and a fire hydrant. Her car then hit a raised grass berm, which caused the vehicle to flip before it landed on the driver’s side facing west on the front lawn of the union hall at 3301 Route 138, he said.
