Pa. Teen Killed In Crash On Garden State Parkway

BRICK, N.J. (AP) -- Authorities say a sport utility vehicle that pulled over on the Garden State Parkway in New Jersey was struck by another SUV, killing a teenage girl from Pennsylvania.

State police said a Ford Explorer veered onto the shoulder where two other vehicles were stopped near Brick shortly before 5:30 p.m. Saturday and struck another SUV.

The drivers were outside but two passengers were in the stopped SUV, which was pushed into the other vehicle.

Police said 15-year-old Rachel Upright of New Milford was pronounced dead at the scene. The other person was rushed to Jersey Shore Medical Center in serious condition.

Police haven't said why the two vehicles had pulled over or why the other vehicle went onto the shoulder. The crash shut down the parkway for about three hours.
