Hamilton Township, NJ (February 23, 2022) – Around 12 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon, February 22, a serious motorcycle crash took place in Hamilton Township.
Police confirmed that the accident happened on South Broad Street at the Gropp Avenue intersection. A 39-year-old man was operating his Suzuki motorcycle in the area when he started to pass a Mitsubishi Outlander. The Mitsubishi started to make a turn at the intersection, causing the two vehicles to collide with one another. The motorcyclist went off the side of the road and into the trees.
Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other local responders were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. The motorcyclist was severely injured and transported to Capital Health Regional Medical Center. The 70-year-old male driver of the Mitsubishi refused medical assistance.
The roadway was blocked at the intersection for a period of time as police worked to clear the scene.
No further details have been released. The investigation into the accident remains ongoing.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family in hopes of a full recovery.
Motorcycle Accidents in New Jersey
Motorcycle accidents are some of the most devastating events on New Jersey roads. This is mostly due to the fact that motorcyclists have no protection from harm in the event of an accident involving any type of large vehicle. In 2017, it was reported that approximately 84 people were killed in fatal motorcycle accidents and many others sustained life-altering and catastrophic injuries. Drivers are expected to be aware of what is happening on the roads around them at all times so motorcycle accidents can be prevented as much as possible. If you have been hurt in a motorcycle accident that was caused by another driver, you should always have the experienced help of a legal advocate on your side.
