Bicyclist Killed After Falling On Roadway, Run Over By 2 Vehicles

On Monday, February 26, 2024, at approximately 6:55 pm, members of the Manchester Township Police responded to the area of County Route 530 near the Whiting Memorial Park, 600 County Route 530, for the report of a bicyclist that was struck by two motor vehicles.

Upon arrival at the scene, officers located the bicyclist, 54-year-old Joseph Slover of Whiting, NJ, in the westbound lane of County Route 530 approximately .25 miles east of Crestwood Parkway, lying in the roadway.  Mr. Slover succumbed to the injuries he sustained as a result of the crash and was pronounced deceased on scene. The two involved vehicles, a gold 2004 Ford Taurus and a green 2008 Nissan Sentra, were located at the scene of the crash with minimal damage.

The investigation revealed that Mr. Slover was operating his electric bicycle westbound on County Route 530 when he fell onto the pavement, coming to rest in the westbound lane. The Ford, traveling in the same direction, subsequently impacted Mr. Slover while he was on the ground. Shortly thereafter, the Nissan, also westbound on County Route 530, struck Mr. Slover for a second time.

The driver of the Ford, 28-year-old, Dylan Coyle, of Whiting, NJ and the driver of the Nissan, 70-year-old, Gary Paszek, of Toms River were both traveling alone at the time of the crash. There were no reported injuries to the drivers.
