A single-vehicle crash in Holmdel left one 84-year-old dead and her 85-year-old husband hospitalized with serious injuries.

State police announced Margaret Cerria, of Lakewood, died after the crash on the Garden State Parkway around 3:40 pm Friday. Philip Cerria, 85, former mayor of Woodbridge, was hospitalized at Jersey Shore University Medical Center with serious injuries.

The crash occurred in the northbound outer lanes near milepost 115. Police said a Chevy Sedan struck a guardrail and subsequently overturned. The crash blocked two lanes on the parkway as traffic backed up for hours.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
