JACKSON, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a man driving with a suspended licensed caused a crash that killed a motorcyclist in southern New Jersey.

Jackson police tell NJ.com (https://bit.ly/1hHOVjp) that the accident occurred around 6 p.m. Saturday in the area of East Veterans Highway and South Hope Chapel Road in the Ocean County community.

They say a pickup truck driven by 38-year-old township resident Jason Wolek made a left turn in front of the 28-year-old motorcyclist, who collided with the truck. The motorcyclist, whose name was not released, died a short time later at a hospital.

Wolek was charged with causing a death or injury while driving with a suspended driver’s license and also received several motor vehicle citations. His bail was set at $50,000 and it was not known Sunday if he had retained an attorney.

While police were still at the scene investigating the crash, a woman who allegedly was driving drunk drove over some traffic cones and entered the crash scene around 9:15 p.m. But the vehicle was soon stopped, and no injuries were reported in that incident.

Authorities say the woman, 22-year-old Jaclyn Morizio of Jackson, was charged with drunken driving and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. She also received several motor vehicle citations.
