by Patricia A. Miller

A Brooklyn man died early this morning when  his Volkswagen slammed into a car that slowed down at the scene of another another accident near mile marker 73 southbound on the Garden State Parkway, Trooper Jeffrey Flynn said.

Alan Kaprov, 34, was pronounced dead at the scene, he said.

The first accident involved a Honda Accord that was disabled as a result of the accident. The driver of the Honda was out of his car, warning other vehicles that debris was in the roadway, Flynn said.

A Nissan Altima and a Buick LaSabre had slowed down to avoid the debris when Kaprov's car struck the Altima at 12:54 a.m., he said.

The New Jersey State Police, Lacey Township Police Department, the Forked River Fire Department, Beachwood EMS, MONOC paramedics, the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office and the Ocean County Medical Examiner responded, Flynn said.

Very sad indeed. Two accidents actually took place, second one proved fatal because someone failed to notice everyone else slowing down or stopped. Sad seeing him the way he was when we got there... Kids stuff thrown all around. No need to bash the New Yorker until you know everything..

Unprofessional complaining about your agency being left out of the paper. Really who cares to be honest. You're not their to get your names in the paper man who was a father, son, brother husband got killed and you people worry about your names sad!!! That's why EMS is a problem so many want the recognition, that look I have a blue light, I got lights and siren, I'm an officer of the squad/first aid. That attitude rot comes from the top down. Remember you're there to serve the public..., NOT WORRY ABOUT NOT GETTING YOUR NAMES IN A REPORT. Have respect for the man's family and be professional.

John, very very true. Kevin, nobody is bashing the NYer. We have no idea what happened. Although it sounds like he didn't stop and should have. We were just saying that way too often people drive like idiots. Maybe it was the idiot in front of him who wasn't paying attention and jammed on his brakes at the last moment. Who knows. Ironically my wife just called me minutes ago to say a guy cut her off so bad trying to pass she had to swerve onto the shoulder. People drive like it's not important and life doesn't matter. And maybe for them it doesnt. But for other people it does. Last year a relative got hit on his Harley. The SOB driver of the car ran a stop sign since he was too busy talking to the passenger. The Harley t boned him and it lunched his son 20 ft down the road and him over the hood. The bike was totalled but both luckily were ok. But at least the guy got to converse with his passenger ! Friggin idiot !
The assholes are not the ones weaving, the assholes are the ones riding in the left lane. I myself do not use my blinker. If I do the car I'm passing will speed up taking the space I need to move into. Sloped for debris my ass more like rubber necking and use that as an excuse. They guy who stopped probably a cops relative.
