Egg Harbor City man dies after dirt bike crash in Hamilton Township


HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — An Egg Harbor City man died Friday night after crashing a dirt bike in the Mizpah section of the township.

About 11:40 p.m., officers responded to a wooded area off Third Avenue for a crash involving a dirt bike, police said in a news release.

Brian Easterday, 29, was riding the bike south on a dirt trail near the sand wash but left the trail and struck a tree, police said. He was wearing a helmet but sustained serious injuries.

Township police and Rescue Squad personnel and members of the state Forest Fire Service got Easterday out of the woods. He was flown to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus, in Atlantic City, where he died.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office and township police are investigating. Anyone with information can call Officer Eric Bittman and Detective Greg Blose at 609-625-2700.
