ELMWOOD PARK, NJ – A man and a woman were killed and four people were injured as a result of a multi-vehicle wrong-way crash on the Garden State Parkway, according to the Hackensack Daily Voice.
The accident occurred in southwest Elmwood Park, near Exit 155 for the GSP, at around 8:25 p.m. Wednesday night, when 57-year-old Philadelphia woman Sandra Vanderslice lost control of a GMC Surburban.

A Cadllac XT-4, a Nissan Altima, a Volkswagen Passat, and a Toyota Camry were struck as a result.
A passenger in the Toyota, 29-year-old Jersey City man Maxim Viscio, died at the scene, as did Vanderslice.
The Toyota’s driver was seriously hurt.
Three occupants of the Volkswagen suffered moderate injuries as a result of the collision.
The identities of the injured victims have not yet been released.
The accident remains under investigation at this time.
