According to news report: “A motorcyclist is dead and his wife is injured after an accident on the Black Horse Pike in Williamstown, New Jersey. The accident was reported at 8:44 a.m. at US 322 (Black Horse Pike) and Cains Mill Road. Police say a Chevy Silverado was traveling west on 322 and was making a left turn into the Wawa parking.

The motorcycle, occupied by a husband and wife, was traveling east on 322 when it struck the side of the pickup truck. Both the husband and wife were ejected from the motorcycle. The female passenger was flown to Cooper University Hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.”

Left turn crashes are the most common motorcycle accidents we see at Stark & Stark.

We represent too many women who are widows due to motorcycle crashes and too many riders who are injured because another driver was careless. We can often help collect medical bills, death benefits, lost wages and compensation for pain and suffering, disability and loss of enjoyment of lifestyle. We search all possible avenues for fair and just compensation. But, sometimes the losses are forever. That is why we urge everyone to ride defensively, be alert for motorcycles, and share the road.
