NEPTUNE TOWNSHIP — Monmouth County officials are trying to learn more about what led to a fatal crash Tuesday night along Route 66.

While riding on an electric bike through the intersection of the main road and Neptune Boulevard, 52-year-old Christopher Mattern collided with the front driver's side corner of a Honda Civic that had been traveling eastbound, according to the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office.

The collision propelled him onto the hood and windshield of the vehicle, authorities say.

Mattern was transported to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries early Wednesday morning.

Mattern was a resident of the Wanamassa section of Ocean Township.

The driver of the Civic, a 33-year old female, was uninjured in the crash and remained on the scene, officials say.

At this time, no summonses or criminal charges have been issued.

The prosecutor's office says it is trying to learn more about the nature and cause of the crash, which occurred just before 10 p.m. Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is urged to contact MCPO Detective Brian Boryszeswki at 800-533-7443 or Neptune Township Police Department Sergeant James MacConchie at 732-988-8000.
