TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) - A motorcyclist riding on the Garden State Parkway was killed when the bike collided with the rear of a van driven by a teenager who allegedly was driving drunk.

State Police say the crash occurred around 8:35 p.m. Saturday in the southbound lanes near exit 82 in Toms River.

It’s not yet clear what caused the crash. Authorities say it appears that the van was moving slowly or had stopped when the collision occurred.

Authorities say no other vehicles were involved in the accident and no one else was injured.

The motorcyclist’s name has not been released pending notification of relatives.



The name of the teen driver was not released due to his age, and it wasn’t clear Sunday if he will face any criminal charges.
