Stafford Police said that Robert Perotti, 53, of Tuckerton was heading from Route 9 onto Route 72 eastbound when he struck a curb at the merged section of the ramp leading to him being thrown from his 2004 Suzuki motorcycle.

There was a retired combat medic who happened to be riding by at the time, police said, and helped provide life saving measures until paramedics and police arrived to the scene of the crash.

Perotti was then flown to Robert Wood Johnson hospital in New Brunswick for treatment of undisclosed injuries and his condition is unknown as of later Saturday night.

Police said that Perotti was not wearing an approved helmet at the time of the collision.

One woman who reportedly saw the motorcycle as she drove on Route 9 south said on the Stafford Police Facebook page that the driver was speeding on Route 9 north, prior to the crash.
