When motorists are taught to share the road it means sharing with everyone that uses the road like pedestrians, bicycles, and motorcycles. Unfortunately, many drivers tend to disregard these other modes of transportation as they are smaller and do not pose a threat when matched against an automobile. It is that unfortunate way of thinking that leads to catastrophic and fatal accidents between motor vehicles and motorcycles.
Such was the case in a recent fatal crash on Route 94 in New Jersey. A motorcyclist collided with a car around 5:30 p.m. The motorcycle was traveling southbound and upon impact, the rider was thrown from the bike. He was transported to a local medical center where he was later pronounced dead. The driver and two passengers of the car refused medical treatment from paramedics at the scene. The accident closed a stretch of the road for more than five hours. The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
