MARTINS CREEK, Pa. (AP) - An 84-year-old New Jersey man has died days after his wife died in an eastern Pennsylvania crash the day after their 61st wedding anniversary.

The Lehigh County coroner says Carl Rodger, of Phillipsburg, New Jersey, died Tuesday at St. Luke’s University Hospital near Bethlehem.

He’d been hospitalized since the Saturday crash that killed 82-year-old Ann Rodger.

She was a passenger in a car driven by her husband when a pile of rocks tumbled onto a road about 9:25 p.m. in Lower Mount Bethel Township. That’s about 70 miles north of Philadelphia.

State police say Carl Rodger swerved to avoid the rocks and into the path of an oncoming pickup. The truck driver and his passenger weren’t hurt.

Ann Rodger died at the scene.
