2 motorcyclists injured in 3-vehicle New Jersey crash
August 27, 2014
Two people were injured in a crash that involved two motorcycles and a vehicle in Woodbridge on Aug. 17. According to the New Jersey State Police, the accident took place on the Driscoll Bridge at approximately 7:45 p.m.
Police stated that a 31-year-old man operating a 2005 Harley Davidson collided with the back end of a 2010 Honda CRV while traveling south on the Garden State Parkway. The impact caused the man to be ejected from his bike. A second Harley Davidson, which was also traveling in the southbound lanes, then collided with the first motorcycle. This collision also caused the driver, a 22-year-old man, to be thrown from his bike.
The 31-year-old man suffered serious injuries to his head. He was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital where he remained in critical condition. The second motorcyclist was also brought to the same hospital for treatment of injuries he suffered to his arm. The driver of the Honda suffered no injuries in the incident. No charges have yet been filed against anyone who was involved in the crash, and an investigation of the accident is still ongoing.
In the event of a motorcycle accident, the biker could suffer serious or even life-threatening injuries since he or she may not be well-protected against the impact of a collision. If police determine that another motorist was at fault for the wreck, the injured motorcyclist may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit against that individual. A lawyer might assist a victim with gathering the right documents when filing the civil suit.
