Motorcyclist killed in New Jersey accident with uninsured driver

A motorcycle accident can result in serious injuries or deaths, because a cyclist doesn't typically have the same protection as a large vehicle. With little bodily protection, scrapes, cuts and broken bones are common, which is why it's important to seek compensation to cover what could be expensive medical bills. When a driver isn't insured and causes your injuries or a loved one's death, that's when you may run into problems that require further action in court.

In this case reported on June 8, a motorcyclist was killed in a motorcycle accident with a Ford Ranger, and his family may have to go through that same situation since the driver of the pickup didn't have insurance. The news reports that a 38-year-old man was driving the Ranger when he turned left in front of the motorcyclist, failing to yield. The bike struck the truck, causing the 28-year-old motorcyclist to crash. The motorcyclist was taken to a local hospital with fatal injuries, and unfortunately, he passed away.

The police were investigating this tragic accident when another vehicle suddenly drove into the scene. According to police, a 22-year-old woman who was intoxicated drove over the traffic cones and into the scene, potentially putting everyone there in harm's way. She was stopped and arrested for intoxication.

The man who struck the motorcyclist was charged for causing a death or injury while driving with a suspended driver's license. He has also been charged for failing to yield to the motorcyclist and for driving an uninsured vehicle. He also faces charges including reckless driving and driving with a suspended driver's license. He has been jailed pending bond.
