HOLMDEL — A crash on the northbound Garden State Parkway made for a slow ride home from the Shore on Sunday afternoon.

A Suzuki motorcycle struck the rear of a 2011 Subaru Legacy around 12:40 p.m., according to State Police spokesman Charles Marchan. The driver of the motorcycle, identified by Marchan as Devin Flores, 38, of Carlstadt, sustained fatal injuries.

Three lanes heading northbound in the outer lanes were blocked north of exit 116 for the PNC Bank Arts Center, causing a multi-mile delay in both the inner and outer lanes. There was also a rubbernecking delay on the southbound side.

No public event was scheduled for the Arts Center on Sunday.

The crash also created traffic on Route 18 and Route 36 from drivers hoping to avoid the Parkway.

State Police did not immediately return a message seeking additional information about the crash.
