A Morristown man was killed when he was ejected from his jet ski after a rear-end collision in Barnegat Bay.
Jet Ski Accident Fatal for Morristown Victim
The accident occurred at around 3:30 P.M. on July 15th. Robert Kaminski, a 62-year-old Morristown resident, was riding along on his watercraft when he appeared to pull over to a side area. He was stopped at the base of the J. Stanley Tunney Bridge when another jet skier, Francis Pietrowski, smashed into the back of the jet ski. The collision sent Kaminski flying from his vehicle, and he smashed into the surface of the water with enough force to severely injure him. By the time emergency rescue personnel arrived on scene, Kaminski had already passed away. Pietrowski did not sustain personal injuries in the crash. Police are investigating whether negligence was a factor in this fatal water accident. It remains unclear whether the victim’s sudden stopping was a factor in the collision.
