Both vehicles were fully engulfed in flames, police said, shutting down all northbound lanes on Route 146 for nearly three hours and diverting traffic elsewhere.
The 62-year-old man operating the second vehicle, a 2018 Subaru Outback, was treated for minor injuries at the scene of the crash.
Investigators are continuing to work on determining the cause of the crash, including why Marmol crossed the median, officials said.
