Manchester Motorcyclist Hurt in Crash, Faces Drug Charges
A Manchester motorcyclist is listed in stable condition after a Sunday crash in Toms River that sent him flying off his wheels and onto the pavement. However, when he recovers, he has drug charges to answer.
Police said that Carl Reavis, 52, was catapulted off his 2004 Kawaski Ninja after being hit from behind by a car driven by Judith Bradshaw, 69, of Brick Township at about 8 PM.
Reavis was stopped at a red signal at Route 37 and Peter Avenue when the impact with Bradshaw's 1994 Lexus occurred, and landed in the intersection, police said.
The biker was flown to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune. Investigators poring over the aftermath found oxycodone and 105 bags of heroin, police said.
Reavis is charged with driving under the influence as well as narcotics possession counts. The Brick Township woman was cited for careless driving.
