Motorcyclist killed in rear-end collision

Motorcycle accidents can take place at any time and anywhere, but they're most commonly caused by dangerous drivers who simply aren't paying attention. Texting, driving while intoxicated, or driving recklessly are all potentially dangerous to motorcyclists and other drivers.

When you're hurt by someone who is driving recklessly, you can seek a claim against them. If you lose a loved one in a fatal accident, you can file a wrongful death claim for your loss.

If you've ever witnessed a driver swerve through several lanes of traffic or suddenly stop on the highway, you know how hard it can be to stop and get out of the way without hitting them. This kind of reckless behavior shouldn't happen, but when it does, it puts everyone at risk. That's what happened in this case.

A firefighter from New Jersey was killed in a motorcycle accident recently; the man's bike collided with a van while he was traveling through Toms River. The 48-year-old man was headed south when he collided with the tail end of a teen driver's vehicle. Although that tends to be the fault of the driver in the rear, that wasn't the case in this situation. The teen had allegedly stopped suddenly in the middle of the highway intending to shift over two lanes and exit at the next exit.

The motorcyclist was ejected, and when the emergency team arrived, he was pronounced dead at the scene. The teen driver has been charged as a juvenile with driving while intoxicated, the possession of drug paraphernalia, and for the possession of marijuana.
