On September 10, 2021 at approximately 10: 45 PM, Gloucester Township Police Officers were dispatched to the on ramp of Route 42 North and Sicklerville Road for a reported motorcycle crash. Upon officers arrival a motorcycle was observed on the ground and the operator was lying on the roadway. Fire and EMS arrived and began to treat the rider.
