single-car crash at a Garden State Parkway toll plaza has claimed the life of a driver.

New Jersey state police say the driver of a car struck a concrete "bullnose" between two toll booths on the southbound side of the Great Egg Harbor toll plaza, near Somers Point, NJ, and caught fire.

Was he running from that cop since it arrived so quickly with it's lights on?
he could of been, but in nj (not sure how other states are) they usually have a cop really close or at every toll booth. espec on the garden state parkway. if you watch it frame by frame you can see something blast out of the window. i cant tell what it is but maybe the driver.

Looks like the driver flew through the windshield. It's hard to tell though. I'm going with suicide.

Egg Harbor NJ toll booth crash 05-10-07.SOMERS POINT — Authorities are
investigating whether a Lower Township man's history of seizures
caused his fatal, high-speed, fiery crash into a Garden State Parkway
toll booth last week.Bernard King, 52, had a history of seizures and
apparently had a seizure only a few hours before the 8:30 a.m.
accident, according to State Police and King's mother, Edna King. Edna
King said her son was taken from the Atlantic City Hilton Casino
Resort, where he worked as a dealer, to AtlantiCare Regional Medical
Center, City Campus, at about 5:30 a.m.State Police Capt. Al Della
Fave also said King was taken to the hospital after suffering a
seizure that some witnesses believed to be a stroke."It wasn't," he
said. "It was a seizure. He was inclined to have seizures."When asked
about King, a hospital spokeswoman said there was "no information
about that name."The cause of King's seizures was not available.Edna
King spoke only briefly Monday about last week's events and her son,
saying, "Right now, I'm getting ready to bury him.""It was so fast,"
she said.Edna King said she's also trying to find out just what
happened Thursday."There's a lot of things up in the air," she said.An
autopsy performed Thursday on King by the Atlantic County Medical
Examiner's Office listed the cause of death as traumatic injuries and
thermal burns.Atlantic County Medical Examiner Dr. Hydow Park was not
available to comment Monday about whether the autopsy revealed
anything related to King's seizure.According to the Casino Control
Commission, King held a casino dealer's license since 1986.King was
heading south on the parkway when he crashed into a concrete barrier
and toll booth at the toll plaza. State Police estimated King was
traveling about 65 mph.King's car immediately burst into flames. State
Police working a nearby truck-exhaust checkpoint rushed to the scene,
only to have their rescue attempt foiled by flames from the burning
car.Fire and rescue units quickly arrived at the scene, along with
other State Police units.The crash closed at least three toll lanes,
and parkway operators waived tolls for about an hour at the remaining
toll lanes to keep traffic moving quickly through the scene.The Great
Egg toll plaza is one of three toll plazas on the southern end of the
parkway that has been converted into one-way toll plazas in an attempt
to improve traffic flow.
