A New Jersey man, 22, was killed in a motorcycle accident in Haverstraw after losing control of his 2006 Suzuki motorcycle that crashed into a guardrail on Route 9W at 3 a.m. Haverstraw Police Department reported the single-vehicle crash occurred a quarter-mile north of Route 304, which resulted in the death of the motorcycle’s only rider.

A motorist chanced upon the crash scene and called 911. The medics who responded to the scene pronounced the motorcycle rider dead. The cause of the accident is still under investigation by the police, as they wait for the toxicology test results in order to determine whether the man’s body showed any trace of substances.  Police said speed could have been a contributing factor in the crash.

Although motorcycle riders have the same rights on the road as all other motorists, motorcycle riding offers a different perspective compared to driving a truck or a car. Many people enjoy the unique pleasures of a motorcycle ride on the open air, but it comes with greater risks of severe injuries, particularly if a vehicle collides with it or if a vehicle driver forces the rider to take sudden action in order to avoid a collision.

Even when motorcycle riders wear their helmet or other forms of protective gear, they can still suffer major injuries or even death. If you or your loved one has been injured or killed in a motorcycle crash in NJ, it’s important that you work with an experienced NJ motorcycle accident attorney.
