WAYNE, N.J. (AP) — State police say a man walking along a highway on-ramp in northern New Jersey was struck and killed by a car driven by a Pennsylvania resident.

Michael Pascrell was on the right side of the on-ramp that leads from Route 80 to Route 46 eastbound in Wayne when the accident occurred around 10:15 p.m. Friday. The 21-year-old Wayne resident was taken to a hospital, where he died early Saturday.
