Greek-American Mortocyclist Killed in Tragic Crash in New Jersey

BAYONNE, NJ – Dimitrios Frangakis was killed while riding his motorcycle at the intersection of Route 440 and Goldsborough Drive around 11:35 PM on January 2.  A North Bergen man, Eliades Roque,  29-years-old,   has been charged with leaving the scene of the crash

Bayonne Police Lt. Joseph Scerbo said Roque is accused of being the hit-and-run driver involved in the crash that led to the death of 43 year-old Frangakis,

Police said Frangakis “was ejected from his motorcycle and found nearly 45 feet away, which Scerbo said was a ‘significant distance away from the motorcycle,’” according to NJ.com, which reported that “Frangakis was taken to Jersey City Medical Center and pronounced dead at 12:40 AM.”

“The motorcycle sustained ‘heavy damage’ to the rear of the bike, leading police to believe that Roque, who was driving a Toyota minivan, rear-ended Frangakis, Scerbo said. Roque is charged with knowingly leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident resulting in death; hindering an apprehension; and tampering with physical evidence, Scerbo said. His bail was set at $60,000,” NJ.com reported.
