Tyler Ford Death – On Saturday night, the New Jersey State Police are looking into an accident that resulted in the death of a 29-year-old man from Hamilton. The man was riding his motorbike on the New Jersey Turnpike when it collided with a four-car pile-up. Sgt. Philip Curry, a spokeswoman for the State Police, stated that the accident took place around 10:17 p.m. on the northbound side of the turnpike on the outer carriageway near milepost 78.8.
The preliminary investigation indicated that a Mitsubishi Outlander was going south in the vicinity of milepost 78.7 when the driver lost control of the vehicle while attempting to avoid debris in the roadway. That first vehicle was involved in a collision with a single other car, and as a result, it got partially incapacitated in the left lane as well as the left shoulder.
According to Curry, the Toyota that hit the Mitsubishi then got partially incapacitated in the middle lane and the left lane after it collided with the Mitsubishi. After then, a BMW X3 collided head-on with the Toyota. After that, a BMW 330i came along and, upon seeing the three disabled vehicles in its route of travel, it also came to a halt in the left lane.
Directly behind the BMW 330i, motorcyclist Tyler Ford was navigating a Suzuki GSX-R600 he was riding. Both the left driver side of the BMW 330i and the right side of the Mitsubishi were damaged when the Suzuki collided with them. According to Curry, Ford was ejected from the vehicle during the sequence of the impact and incurred fatal injuries as a result.
He further stated that there were no reports of any additional injuries at the scene. Due to the closure of the left and center lanes of the southbound outer roadway for nearly three hours, there was very little congestion in the surrounding area. Curry stated that the inquiry into the collision is still ongoing.
