State police say 21-year-old Kyle Wands of Lakehurst was southbound in the center lane near milemarker 87.5 in Toms River when the deer struck the passenger side of his car just before 1 a.m. Wednesday.

Wands stopped in the roadway and got out of his vehicle, but he was soon struck by another car driven by 25-year-old Anthony Labella of Howell Township. Wands was knocked to the side of the road, while Labella was ejected from his vehicle.

Both men were taken to a hospital, where Wands was pronounced dead a short time later. Labella was in serious condition.
