Man Killed In Freehold Charity Motorcycle Ride

Officials have identified a motorcyclist who died after a crash during a charity motorcycle ride to raise money for babies in Freehold on Sunday.

The March of Dimes “Bikers for Babies” ride began Sunday in Freehold at the Cabin restaurant on Route 33

Deputy first assistant Monmouth County prosecutor Richard Incremona tells the Asbury Park Press the crash involved multiple motorcycles and at least one car at Adelphia Road and Wellesley Way.

Monmouth County prosecutors say  that 32-year-old Jason Rivera of Middletown and 37-year-old Jack Wood Jr. of Keansburg were passing other riders as the group approached an intersection in Freehold Township. The two were planning to shut down the intersection so the group could safely pass through.

But as they rode up a slight hill, they encountered a sport utility vehicle. Wood tried to stop, but was struck from behind by Rivera.

Rivera later died at a hospital, while Wood remained hospitalized Monday. The third rider was treated and released.
