Motorcyclist Killed in Crash With SUV on Black Horse Pike in South Jersey
A motorcyclist is dead following a crash on the Black Horse Pike in Camden County Friday afternoon.
Gloucester Township Police say the accident happened around 1:30 at the intersection with Brewer Avenue.
Arriving officers found the driver of the motorcycle laying in the roadway. Several EMS crews attempted to save the driver's life but they were not successful.
The driver of the other vehicle involved, an SUV, suffered minor injuries and she was treated at the scene.
Initial investigation revealed that the motorcycle was traveling southbound on the Black Horse Pike when the driver of a gold colored Ford Escape pulled out in front of the motorcycle from Brewer Avenue to make a left hand turn Northbound onto the Black Horse Pike. It appears the driver of the motorcycle attempted to avoid the collision, but ultimately was unable to stop.
This crash remains under investigation and there are no charges at this time.
The Black Horse Pike was closed for approximately two and a half hours.
Unfortunately, this crash comes as we just concluded Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month where we were reminded to yield to motorcyclists at intersections, be alert because they are smaller and often more difficult to see, and that the operator still has the same rights of the road as any other motorist.
Officials have not yet released the identities of those involved in the crash.
