Single Vehicle Crash In Manchester Results In Driver Medevac To Trauma Center

On Tuesday, at approximately 10:35am officers of the Manchester Township Police Department were dispatched to Horicon Ave approximately a half-mile east of County Route 530 for the report of an overturned pick-up truck.

Upon arrival at the scene, officers observed a white 2020 Toyota Tacoma overturned on its driver side with extensive front-end damage. The investigation revealed that the vehicle was traveling west on Horicon Ave. The Toyota crossed over the center line and left the roadway to the left and impacted several trees. Due to the impact with the trees, it caused the vehicle to rotate approximately 180 degrees and overturn onto its driver’s side. The Toyota came to final rest on its driver’s side facing east partially in the eastbound travel lane of Horicon Ave.

The driver of the Toyota, identified as 42-year-old, Jeremy D. Bier of Pennsauken, NJ, suffered multiple severe injuries to his entire body. Mr. Bier was transported via Medevac to Jersey Shore University Medical Center. It was determined that Mr. Bier at the time of the crash was not wearing a seatbelt. Mr. Bier is listed in critical condition at this time.

Assisting at the scene were EMTs and firefighters from the Manchester Township Division of Emergency Services, firefighters from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst Fire Department, firefighters from Whiting Volunteer Fire Department, and Robert Wood Johnson LifeFlight. The investigation into this crash is still on going, however, failure to maintain lane and failure to wear a seatbelt appear to be the primary contributing factors. This crash is being investigated by Ptl. Conner Yatauro of the department’s Traffic Safety Section.
