Wayde Scheffer, 60, of Califon, died after his black 2018 Jeep Cherokee struck the front deck of a home on West Main Street around 5:21 p.m., said High Bridge Police Chief Brett Bartman.
Scheffer was driving northbound on West Main Street when he crossed over to the other side of the road and onto the front lawn of the house, Bartman said.
Scheffer was alone in the car at the time of the crash, Bartman said. There were multiple residents inside of the house, but none were injured.
West Main Street was closed off between Arch Street and Dennis Avenue for hours after the crash.
Bartman said the cause of the crash remains under investigation.
