Robert Kaminski, a 62-year-old resident of Morristown, perished last month as a result of a jet ski accident in the Barnegat Bay.
New Jersey Jet Ski Accident Fatal for Victim
Kaminski was traveling along the water in a Sea Doo watercraft when his jet ski was rear-ended from behind at around 3:30 P.M. Kaminski was instantly ejected from the jet ski, and he suffered multiple injuries. The driver who rear-ended the victim, Francis Pietrowski, was not injured in the crash. Toms River Police, firefighters and the New Jersey State Police responded to the accident near the north side of the J. Stanley Tunney Bridge, but Kaminski perished at the scene. According to the victim’s family members, it’s possible Kaminski may have suffered from a heart attack right before Pietrowski slammed into the back of his jet ski. Police have not yet confirmed the family’s statements, and authorities have not disclosed the exact timeline of events leading up to the wrongful death.
