A Sussex County, N.J., man was hit by a vehicle and killed as he stood next to his stopped car on eastbound Route 22 in Bethlehem Township early Saturday in what state police called a hit-and-run crash.

Troopers are asking for the public’s help in finding the hit-and-run driver responsible for the death of 60-year-old Paul J. Agens of Hamburg, N.J., who fled the scene. The incident occurred at 2 a.m. not far from the highway’s Route 33 interchange, according to a state police public information report.
