A 60-year-old Brick man was seriously injured Friday in a three-vehicle crash involving a motorcycle, police said.
Robert A. Amtzis, operator of a 2003 Harley Davidson Sportster, suffered injuries to both his arms and legs, police said.
Those involved in the accident at Chambers Bridge Road and Brick Boulevard were Rosa E. Geller, 60, of Brick, driver of a 2006 Ford Five Hundred; and Robert M. Dering, 35, of Kenilworth, driver of a 1999 Ford F50 Pickup.
At 12:39 p.m., Geller's car was traveling east on Chambers Bridge Road, approaching the intersection with Brick Boulevard, when Amtzis was traveling on Hooper Avenue, proceeding through the intersection, police said.
Dering's vehicle had been stopped in the left turning lane directly behind Geller. As the motorycycle began to travel across the intersection, Geller failed to yield the right of way and turned into the oncoming path of the motorcycle, police said.
As a result, the motorcycle struck Gellar's car; the bike then lost control and continued through the intersection where it impacted Dering's vehicle, police said.
The Brick Township Police Department’s Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene. Amtzis was transported to Ocean Medical Center-Brick where he was treated for his injuries.
Traffic was detoured around the crash for approximately 45 to 60 minutes due to the investigation and clean up.
Officer Ryan Talty conducted the crash investigation. Based on Officer Talty’ s investigation Driver 1 was found to be at fault for the crash and was issued a motor vehicle summons for careless driving.
