The New Jersey State Police are investigating a crash that occurred on Interstate 78 westbound at milepost 38 last night.

At approximately 8:42 p.m., troopers attempted to stop a Honda for driving erratically on Interstate 78 westbound in the area of milepost 42.8 in Berkeley Heights Township. 

The driver of the Honda failed to stop. Troopers followed the vehicle for approximately three miles before the driver lost control and ran off of the road to the right into a wooded area. 

Two male occupants inside the vehicle are deceased.

At the same location, a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle in a separate motor vehicle crash. 

The driver of the vehicle was flown to Morristown Memorial with serious injuries, and the pedestrian was transported by ambulance to the same hospital.

There were no troopers hurt during the incident and the troop car was not involved in either crash. 

There is currently an extensive ongoing investigation.
