A 70-year-old motorcyclist was killed in a crash Saturday in Brick, authorities said.
Ronald Tucci was riding north on Brick Boulevard when he rear-ended a vehicle as both were shifting lanes, Brick police said in a statement.
Tucci, a Brick resident, was thrown from the motorcycle and pronounced dead at Jersey Shore University Hospital in Neptune later that day, according to police.
The driver of the car, a 30-year-old East Hanover woman and the passenger, a 63-year-old Brick woman, were not injured.
The crash took place around 3:30 p.m. as the car, which was in the turning lane tried to move right to continue on Brick Boulevard. At about the same time, Tucci attempted to shift left to pass another vehicle.
He was unable to brake in time and struck the back of the Morris County woman’s car about 300 feet south of Beaverson Boulevard.
Anyone with information is asked to contact patrolman Jay Lampiasi at 732-262-1141.
