JERSEY CITY, New Jersey — A woman who was on a walker with her husband was killed and her other husband seriously injured Saturday morning when the Jeep they were driving crashed into a house, police said.

The Jeep’s driver, 43-year-old Mark F. Lee, was pronounced dead at the scene, police spokeswoman Lisa Tullio said.

His passenger, 24-yearold William C. Jones, was taken to a hospital in critical condition, Tulliol said.

The Jeep driver and passenger were not injured, Trolio said, adding that investigators believe the driver and the passenger were at a red light before the crash.

Police said the crash happened at about 1:30 a.m. on the 5800 block of Lake Avenue in the City of Woodside.

Police said there were three vehicles involved in the crash: a Jeep that was on its roof, a Lexus SUV, and a white Lexus with no license plate, Tolk said.

The Jeep was traveling eastbound on Lake Avenue when it struck a house.

Witnesses reported seeing a large black SUV with no lights on driving at a high rate of speed and then accelerating, Tullah said.

A red light on Lake was green at the time, but the Jeep accelerated in that direction and then hit the house, Trolley said.

Both men were pronounced dead on the scene.

The house sustained major structural damage, Tuliol said, and police said it was possible that one of the men might have been ejected from the vehicle.

The other man was taken by ambulance to the hospital.

It is unknown if the SUV was stopped at the intersection of Lake and Main streets and was carrying people.

A Lexus was found parked at the home, but no one was inside, Tulsiol said Saturday.

A friend of the couple told police that they were on a short walk when the crash occurred.
