Fatal Motorcycle Accident on Garden State Parkway

Fatal Motorcycle Accident on Garden State Parkway

Early in June, a series of motorcycle accidents occurred across the state of New Jersey, leaving a number of motorcycle riders dead. One of the motorcycle accidents occurred on June 4th, leaving a 23-year-old man dead at the scene. Complete details have not been released, and there is no evidence that drugs or alcohol played a role in the accident.

The driver, of Hillside New Jersey, was riding southbound on the Garden State Parkway very early Sunday morning. Around 2:40 a.m., the police officers responded to a 911 call of a motorcycle accident with another car, around milepost 146.4 in Newark, New Jersey.

He was riding his 2007 Yamaha motorcycle, when a witness claims he rear-ended a 1999 Nissan sedan. Neither the driver of the car, nor the motorcycle driver appeared to be under the influence, and it is not known whether the car driving in front of him unexpectedly hit the brakes. The accident resulted in the closure of a few lanes of the highway, which remained that way for a day in order to further investigate. No more details were publicly released, including the name of the driver of the sedan, nor if there were any other influences leading to the crash.

Motorcycle accidents are becoming more common today, and many of them come to unfortunate ends of those driving the motorcycles. Those who are fortunate enough to live, often have injuries that last from a few months, to a lifetime.
