Two people are dead following a car crash Tuesday night in Jackson.

An unidentified flat bed operator and a passenger were killed while responding to an accident on Cassville Road. The driver didn't stop at the stop sign as he was driving on Leesville Road. A witness tells the Asbury Park Press the truck crossed Cassville, hit a tree and caught fire.

Cassville Road was closed for several hours as police conducted an investigation and cleared the scene.
