Motorcyclist Killed While Driving Wrong Way on Route 80 in Totowa, NJ

A motorcyclist was killed while reportedly fleeing police on a highway in Totowa, New Jersey.

The events precipitating the horrific motorcycle accident went down around 2:51 a.m. on Sunday morning. NJ State Police troopers were on patrol when they saw the motorcyclist driving a black Suzuki bike at an extremely high rate of speed on Route 80 in Totowa, NJ. When the police officers attempted to get the motorcyclist’s attention, he allegedly ignored their requests for him to pull over and instead accelerated.

According to authorities, the suspect took a number of dangerous actions while eluding police, including multiple attempts to weave in and out of lanes on the highway. At one point, the motorcyclist traveled the wrong way on Route 80, heading eastbound in the highway’s westbound lanes.

Not long after police began to pursue the motorcyclist, he crashed his bike into a black Honda Accord that was traveling in the opposite direction on Route 80.

The injured motorcyclist sustained catastrophic injuries in the wrong-way collision.

Now New Jersey State Police have identified the motorist who was tragically killed in the violent collision. Authorities released information about the car crash victim: Brian Bermudez, a Woodland Park NJ resident who was 24 years old at the time of his death.

Thankfully, the other driver involved in the serious motorcycle accident was not injured.
