A motorcyclist died in serious accident with a car that occurred Monday on Fischer Boulevard, police said.

The 2:15 p.m. accident occurred when a 2014 Hyundai Sonata collided with a motorcycle on Fischer near Glasgow Avenue.

Barbara McCarthy, 79, of Seaside Park, was exiting a business located at 542 Fischer Boulevard and making a left turn in her Hyundai Sonata to travel north. Shawn Bowles, 27, of Manchester, was traveling South on Fischer boulevard on a 2015 Honda motorcycle when McCarthy pulled out in front of him.


The motorcycle collided with the car on its driver’s side. Bowles was taken to a local hospital where he later died as a result of his injuries, said Ralph Stocco, Toms River police spokesman.

Toms River Traffic Safety Officers David Bartoshek, Robert Westfall, and Mark Nater are conducting the investigation along with members of the Ocean County Prosecutors Office and Ocean County Sheriff’s Department. Charges have not yet been filed and the crash remains under investigation.
