Police responded to the pike and Upas Avenue about 2:50 p.m. for a report of a motor vehicle collision. A 2019 Suzuki GSX operated by Michael P. Giannetta Jr., 34, of Galloway, was traveling west on the pike, approaching Upas, police said in a news release.
A 2000 U.S. Postal Service truck operated by Jocelyn L. Moore, 49, of Egg Harbor Township, was stopped at the stop sign on Upas southbound. As Moore attempted to turn left onto the pike, Giannetta’s motorcycle struck the front driver side of the mail truck, and he was ejected from the bike.
Giannetta was transported to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus, where he died, police said. Moore was transported to AtlantiCare’s Mainland Campus for injuries that were not life-threatening.
