A motorcyclist was tragically killed after being involved in a serious motorcycle accident while driving through Fairfield, New Jersey.
The fatal motorcycle crash went down a short time before 1:00 p.m. The biker, a Paterson NJ resident, was riding his Suzuki GSX motorcycle and traveling on Passaic Avenue during the afternoon when he approached Little Falls Road and collided with a pick-up truck.
Other motorists on the roadway saw the scary collision and dialed 911 to alert local law enforcement. The Fairfield Police Department immediately dispatched officers and emergency medical crews to the scene. When authorities arrived in the area, they saw the aftermath of the head-on collision: the motorcyclist was seriously injured, the driver of the Ford truck was also injured, and both vehicles were mangled beyond recognition.
Emergency medical crews treated the truck driver at the scene of the auto accident, while the injured motorcyclist was rushed via ambulance to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, New Jersey. Tragically, doctors at the Paterson hospital were unable to save the victim; he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.
The motorcyclist was just 28 years old when he died as a result of catastrophic injuries sustained in the bike accident.
At this time, several law enforcement agencies, including the Fairfield Police Department, the New Jersey State Police, and Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, are
investigating the tragic motorcycle accident and attempting to determine whether one of the motorists may have been responsible for the crash. Police have not yet filed any criminal charges or issued traffic citations in connection with the auto accident.
