A pickup truck crossed the centerline on a New Jersey road Saturday, striking two motorcycles in the oncoming lane and creating a five-vehicle chain reaction crash.

According to NJ.com, the crash occurred shortly after 2:00 pm Saturday on Route 347 in Maurice River Township.

Michael Ennis, 53, and his passenger Diane Allen, 53, traveled on his Harley Davidson in the southbound lane of Route 347 when a Dodge Ram pickup truck in the northbound lane driven by Joseph Moyer, 40, took a turn too wide, crossed the yellow centerline and struck them head on.

The pickup truck traveled further down the road where it hit Robin Ennis, 48, on her Harley motorcycle and killed her, pushing her motorcycle into the front of the car that had been traveling behind her. William Good, riding his Honda motorcycle then rammed into the back of that car.

The pickup truck, with a severely damaged front end, finally stopped against a guardrail.

Emergency responders transported Michael Ennis to Atlanticare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City by helicopter where his condition is critical, reports pressofatlanticcity.com. Police pronounced Diane Allen and Robin Ennis dead at the scene, transferring their bodies to Shore Memorial Hospital in Somers Point.

Friends of Michael Ennis told CBS Philly that he is a volunteer EMT and firefighter with the Wenonah Fire Department and that “He is just a great guy.”
