does anyone have any news or updates on the motorcycle crash on RT 80 West bound around 4:15pm? I believe they were being chased by the State Police..

Girls helmet flew off and rolls over 2 lanes. Hope they make it.

I drove past it going the other way.. 1 man....1 woman....true her helmet was off and she was clearly I can tell you as an eyewitness that she was alive immediately after being thrown from the bike.....because she was face down, I could not tell how badly she was hurt. From behind she looked like anyone lying on a beach or a field of grass, but in the middle of interstate 80 at rush hour it was a sight I won't soon forget. I too am craving further information. The other crazy thing was that her pants were halfway down adding to the surreal nature of it all.

I truly appreciate the news. It was bothering me a great deal, and I was amazed by the lack of news out there considering how unlikely the whole thing was....(or am I naiieve? do people get thrown off of motorcycles into major interstates all the time?)

All this occured in front of my car. It was crazy to see the crash and then 2 parts on the floor and a helmet roll away to the left. It was all in slow motion from my perspective. For some reason I was calm, slowed down and knew that I was the next car up and if I did not move left - I was over the body. Luckily I was able to move left and had to move. The scene keeps repeating in my head and to see such young people hurt - broke my heart. It was only whenI found out that they got away with mirnor injuries was I able to rest. It was horrific. I was so sorry for their parents. The motorcyclist was weaving and I heard a crazy roar on my left - knew that something was not right. He cut me off and banged into the edge of the car in fron - then it was history.

I was traveling in the left lane west bound when I heard the motorcycle coming up and it passed me on my right at excessive speed. Thought that it was a child on the back and said out loud they are going to get killed. It happened so fast, I saw them cut off another car and slam into the vehicle. Passenger flew off the back and flipped into the air and landed on the roadway with the debris of the motorcycle all over the highway and flying across my car. It is a sight I will not forget as my daughter was seriously injured when she was hit by a hit and run driver and thrown 85 ft. in the air. I do know that there was someone looking down on these 2 kids because for them to walk away from a horrific accident like that is a miracle. They should be glad that they are slapped with charges and still alive and not in a body bag. I could not believe my eyes when I saw the young girl get up. I still have images of her flying off that bike

I must have passed on the other side about 30 seconds after this happend. I saw him motionless and her pants ripped off crawling with only her arms. It was a horrific scene and I couldn't believe my eyes. Two good citizens were running out infront of oncoming traffic risking their own lives, signaling everyone to slowdown. The man and woman deserve a big thank you from the two motorcyclists. I'm glad I can sleep tonight knowing they are ok.

Wow! "eyewitness" then you were the car to the left of me. I heard the roar and knew that this was beyond reckless driving. When the bike slammed into the SUV - the entire scene became a blur - for the entire evening I thought the person was dismembered because I saw a bare leg. It must have been the young lady. I prayed so much for them and their families. It is amazing how we were all there in the same spot same time. God bless the 2 citezens that were helping.

....(just to be clear ..let's call me eyewitness #! of 2)... not a word in the press ?
I called 2 police departments today(Patterson and W Patterson) where no one knew anything . I was advised to call NJ State Police Public relations office from9-to-5. I guess if someone had died it would have been deemed newsworthy. I am touched by everyone's care and concern.

That was my boy who was operating the bike he met that girl the same day and asked her if she wanted to ride. he had no bike license no insurance on the bike no registration thats why he ran from the cops. the girl is still in the hospital but shes good. shes suffering from severe road rash, and needed staples in her head. hes in jail for elluding a cop,, hope i spelled that right, and 2 counts of assault.

I was there also maybe like 3-5 cars back. I seen this guy and a girl with red sweat pants on the back of a bike flying in the fast lane going like 100 mph. Maybe about 200 yards past that I see him switching from fast lane to middle/slow lane. Then I witnessed him and her flying like 30ft up in the air. Seconds after that I started recording with my phone. I felt cold I could not believe I just seen this. I can't believe there alive. There lUCKY to be alive!!! Whoever wants video seconds after the accident let me know.

I was the woman who stopped to try to help the two injured people. That's my Grand Marquee in the shoulder of the video. The man who stopped was in the SUV in front of me. We were both traveling in the right lane when it happened. I didn't even see the accident. I just saw the motorcycle & the 2 people flying through the air. The SUV driver & I both pulled in to the shoulder & jumped out to help. When the police officer arrived, he told us to go back to our cars because the 2 people were under arrest. I sat in my car for a few minutes & I saw both of the injuried people get up before I drove off. Hope they are both OK.

I am the driver of the car that the bike hit.
I drive a Chrysler Town & Country Mini Van.
I did not see anything happen. I felt an enormous
impact from behind, as if I was hit by a car and felt glass shooting past me into the front of the van and all over the dash board. I had a passenger but, neither of us were injured. I looked up into the rear view mirror expecting to see a car and instead saw a person all in black clothing lying on the road. As soon as I pulled over the police arrived. To witnesses stopped near me.

This accident occurred directly in front of us. We were the second car. Didn't see the total accident, but narrowly avoided hitting the persons on the pavement. We are relieved to know that the injuries were minor - hard to believe. I did pray with the man.
