The New Jersey Attorney General’s Office says they are conducting an investigation of a fatal crash between an Atlantic City police vehicle and a bicyclist that occurred last month.

The victim in the crash has been identified as 63-year-old Everett Stern of Atlantic City.

Officials say a preliminary investigation shows a uniformed ACPD officer was driving a marked patrol vehicle northbound on Arkansas Avenue on the way to a call for service, with no lights or sirens on, when the accident occurred at around 8:30 PM on June 25th at Arkansas and Arctic Avenues.

According to a press release, "Mr. Stern was traveling eastbound on Arctic Avenue when his bicycle struck the driver side of the police vehicle. The officer called for emergency medical personnel and immediately began rendering aid to Mr. Stern. Mr. Stern was taken by ambulance to Atlanticare Regional Medical Center, where he died on June 25."

The AG's office says they're looking into the crash because they are required to do so when any death occurs during an encounter with a law enforcement officer when that officer is acting in an official capacity.

The investigation into the accident continues.
