MONTGOMERY — A motorcyclist who was hospitalized Sunday after a crash that shut down Route 206 for two hours has died from injuries sustained in the accident, authorities said.
Tracy S. Penn of the Belle Mead section of Montgomery died Wednesday at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital from injuries sustained in a Sunday crash at Route 206 near Griggstown Road, according to Lt. James Curry of the Montgomery Police. He was 52.
Penn was driving southbound of Route 206 on a 1979 Harley-Davidson Sportster motorcycle when he lost control and crashed, Curry said.
A witness said Penn was approaching a line of vehicles stopping for the traffic signal at Griggstown Road when he skidded and lost control of the motorcycle, Curry said. No other vehicles were involved in the crash, Curry said.
Penn was treated at the scene by Montgomery EMS and the Somerset Medical Center Mobile Intensive Care Unit before being airlifted to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick where he was listed in critical condition at the time, Curry said.
