A 26-year-old man from Mount Laurel, died in a motorcycle crash in New Jersey after his motorcycle collided with another vehicle in Medford. According to this news report, the motorcyclist was riding a 2006 Suzuki westbound on Church Road when a 22-year-old woman driving a Chevrolet Tahoe made a left turn in front of him.
The motorcyclist suffered fatal head injuries. This is apparently the 30th auto accident in Burlington County in 2009 and the second motorcycle fatality in Medford in the last two months.
New Jersey Vehicle Code section 39:4-123 prohibits motorists from making improper right or left-hand turns. New Jersey Vehicle Code section 39:4-11.5b states that motorists who are attempting to make a turn must “come to a complete stop and yield to all traffic and pedestrians before proceeding.”
