Another fatal motorcycle accident occurred in northern New Jersey in Hudson County. Over the weekend, a young motorcyclist from Clifton was killed after his motorcycle struck the rear of a vehicle. That vehicle had just entered the highway from the shoulder of the road on Route 280 East in Harrison, NJ. The accident occurred early on Sunday, March 31, shortly before 1:00 a.m.

According to at least one online news article*, a Philadelphia driver had pulled over onto the shoulder of Route 280. The motorcycle struck the car’s rear as it re-entered the roadway. The motorcycle rider was thrown off his bike and suffered fatal head injuries.

A second motorcycle collision occurred when another motorcycle rider struck the first motorcycle. The second motorcyclist then lost control of his bike and received minor injuries.
