E-Motorcycle Crash With Port Authority Cruiser That Killed Hudson Man Near GWB Captured On Video

An electric motorcycle driven by a North Bergen guy sped past a surveillance camera near the George Washington Bridge before colliding with a turning Port Authority police vehicle.

A video obtained by the office of New Jersey Attorney General Matthew J. Platkin shows both vehicles, but a column obscures the view of the Oct. 17 collision that killed 38-year-old Rolando Quevedo at the intersection of Lemoine Avenue and Bruce Reynolds Boulevard.

State authorities disclosed the video as part of an investigation mandated by New Jersey law anytime a civilian is killed in a confrontation with law enforcement.

Officer Miguel Correa responded to a non-emergency call around 5:45 a.m. without his lights and sirens activated, according to Platkin.

The officer had a green signal on eastbound Bruce Reynolds Boulevard, according to a Port Authority police spokesperson at the time. She stated that the electric bike was travelling north on Lemoine Avenue when it collided with the SUV.

At 6:27 a.m., at the Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, Quevedo was pronounced dead.

The cop was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella at the time.

The two videos that were provided by Platkin’s office on February 1 can be accessed here:

Platkin stated that Quevedo’s family was viewed the films prior to their release.

The attorney general stated, “The inquiry is ongoing and no additional information is being shared at this time.”

State law mandates that his agency examine any deaths in New Jersey that occur “during an encounter with a law enforcement officer operating in the officer’s official capacity or while the decedent is in custody.” “regardless of the circumstances.

The standards ensure that the inquiry by the Office of Public Integrity and Accountability (OPIA) of the attorney general is conducted “in a complete, unbiased, and transparent way, “without politics and personal motives.

After the inquiry has been concluded, the findings are presented to a grand jury.

The grand jury examines a variety of evidence, such as witness interviews, body and dashcam footage, and forensic and autopsy reports, to evaluate whether or not there is reason to suspect law enforcement misconduct.

In this particular instance, there were both witnesses and surveillance cameras.
