Fatal Motorcycle Crash Under Investigation in Kearny

Newark Jersey City

Kearny Police officials are investigating a crash that killed a man on a highway in Hudson County last week. 

According to Kearny Police, on September 3rd, at approximately 9:34 p.m., police responded to the westbound lanes of State Route 7 where the Newark/Jersey City Turnpike and the Belleville Turnpike split for a motor vehicle accident with a motorcyclist down.

Arriving at the scene, police say they were flagged down by a group of people standing over an unresponsive male where they were advised that he was involved in a motor vehicle crash and began to perform CPR. 

According to authorities, EMS arrived on the scene and transported the victim, identified as Mr. Ahmed Mohamed, to University Hospital, where he was pronounced a short time later. 

Police say Mr. Mohamed had no identification; however, the officers could confirm his identity with one of his friends on the scene.  The other vehicle involved had arrived on the scene, driven by Mr. Ivan Thomas Jr.

Although there were no witnesses, police spoke with two individuals who stated they observed the motorcycle going to the ground and quickly moved Mr. Mohamed and the bike to a safe location on the shoulder since cars were passing by at a high rate of speed.

They believe Mr. Mohamed was struck by another vehicle and did not lose control.

While there are no pending charges, the investigation is still underway.
