RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A man riding a motorcycle went flying into the Passaic River in Rutherford, New Jersey Thursday evening.
As WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported, police said it all started with a crash between the motorcycle and another vehicle on the Route 3 West Bridge high over the river.
Rutherford police Sgt. Craig Capoano said the motorcycle stayed where it was, but the rider went flying.
“His body subsequently flipped over the guard rail into the water,” Capoano said. “The drop is about 50 feet.”
