One Dead, Two Injured in Mt. Olive Crash

Female motorcycle passenger died after bike collided with sedan on Route 206 Sunday night.

A female passenger on a motorcycle was killed Sunday night when the vehicle she was riding struck a sedan on Route 206 in Mount Olive, according to Mount Olive Police Officer Eric Anthony.

The motorcycle was heading southbound on Route 206 when it collided with a Toyota Camry leaving the 7-Eleven convenience store, which was attempting to turn left into the northbound lane of the roadway, Anthony said.

UPDATE: Police identify woman killed as a 60-year-old Toms River resident.

The driver of the motorcycle remained on the bike when the vehicles collided, but the passenger was ejected from the rear seat, Anthony said.

The female driver of the Camry was taken to Morristown Medical Center, along with the motorcycle driver, with non life-threatening injuries, Anthony said.

Identification of the three persons involved has yet to be released by the police department until next of kin is contacted, Anthony said.

Patch is following this story and will provide details when they become available.
