UPDATE: Motorcycle Crash Kills 37-Year-Old Bayonne Man
The Jersey City Police Department are continuing to investigate the cause of a crash that killed a motorcyclist Monday night in Jersey City.
According to Jersey City Police, the crash happened at 9:51 p.m. at 425 Ocean Avenue where they were notified of a collision with injuries.
When officers arrived at the scene, they observed firefighters providing CPR to an unconscious male who suffered a severe head injury.
According to police, they noticed a badly damaged motorcycle wedged under a car during their initial investigation.
Police say the 37-year-old driver of the car told them that he was driving southbound on Ocean Avenue when the motorcycle crashed into his vehicle.
EMS rushed 29-year-old Mr. Anthony Rose to Jersey City Medical Center, where doctors pronounced him dead at 10:37 p.m.
According to residents, they said Rose -who is known in the area- was doing wheelies and was at a "12 o'clock" position when a vehicle crashed into him. Residents said the impact of the collision sent the victim airborne until his head struck the concrete curb.
A concerned resident did tell police that the driver of the car was making a U-turn at the time of the crash, but the person did not want to go on the record officially nor provide further information according to reports.
The incident remains under investigation.
