A 41-year-old Elizabeth man died early Wednesday in a vehicle crash in Linden, police said. 

The man, who was identified as the passenger, was killed when the 2002 Lexus sedan he was traveling in struck a parked tractor trailer on the eastbound side of  the 1100 block of West St. Georges Avenue, police said.

The driver, a 40-year-old from Elizabeth, was injured in the crash and taken to University Hospital in Newark for non-life-threatening injuries. 

The street was closed in both directions until about 5 a.m.
