Scooter Rider Killed in Hamilton, NJ Crash | Law Offices of Harold J. Gerr

Officials ID Scooter Rider Killed in Crash While Pursued by Police


On Wednesday, police identified the scooter rider who died last month when struck by a car at an intersection while police tried to pull him over. The 21-year old scooter rider did not wear a helmet as he rode through the intersection of Route 33 and Whitehorse-Mercerville Road at 9:00 p.m. on May 25 when a Hamilton Township police officer in an unmarked car tried to get him to pull him over.

The scooter rider continued on Route 33 and was hit by a Dodge Caravan that was attempting to turn into the Mercerville Shopping Center. The scooter rider flew into the windshield of the caravan. He died two days later at a hospital. The New Jersey Attorney General’s Office is investigating the 21-year old’s death. State law requires the office to investigate deaths associated with official law enforcement encounters.

Electric scooters have surged in popularity in recent years and were legalized for use on New Jersey streets in 2019. Riders in these vehicles, much like those on bicycles or motorcycles, are far more vulnerable in a collision than car drivers.
