POWNAL, Vt. — A local man was killed on the New Jersey Turnpike on Wednesday after his motorcycle broke down.
Thomas Snow, 52, was apparently struck by a tractor trailer truck while trying to move his Harley-Davidson off the highway, according to several news reports out of New Jersey.
New Jersey State Police said Snow was in the northbound lane and trying to move the motorcycle across the highway from the left shoulder to the right when the truck hit him in the righthand lane.
The accident occurred about 1:30 a.m. in Hamilton, south of the Route 195 Exit. He was taken to a hospital and died not long afterward.
Police say no charges have been filed in the accident, which is under investigation.
A GoFundMe account has been set up to help Snow's family.
