Motorcyclist Critically Injured In Collision With Truck In Bayville

Accident happened on Dorsey Lane at 7:57 p.m., police said

A 48-year-old Bayville man was in critical condition early this morning, after his motorcycle collided with a Dodge Ram truck on Dorsey Drive early Tuesday evening, Patrolman John Houghkirk said.

James McGee, Hancock Avenue, was traveling north on Dorsey Lane across from Central Regional High School when his 2006 Harley Davidson collided with a truck driven by Ralph Blumberg, 22, Dorsey Lane, Houghkirk said.

McGee was flown to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune with critical injuries. Blumberg received minor injuries in the collision. McGee was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, said Houghkirk.

No charges have been filed yet, but the investigation is continuing, Houghkirk said.

The Bayville First Aid Squad and the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office's F.A.S.T. also responded.

Come back to Berkeley Patch for an update later today.

FOR ALL OF U IDIOTS on here I personally know the guy and his wife... I have been there since day one and know what has been going on... So for u Fawkes who is trolling and has nothing at all to say, go bullie someone else or better yet let's meet up so u can be a "man" and say this stuff to my face....
have respect January 04, 2013 at 01:43 AM
"FOR YOU, IDIOT", I personally know both families and have been there since day one and know what has been going on. And from the first comment you made on another person's post, you are the bully. You were NOT involved in the accident. And your BULLY TACTICS of stating that you will "meet up" with Fawkes is just another point proving your ignorance and the character you are.
Shim January 04, 2013 at 01:52 AM
Whatever I guess the truth hurts and u have proven that... No bully Tatic I just want to c this person who has not made one comment about the accident face to face...since he has only target me
have respect January 04, 2013 at 02:02 AM
I have proven what? c this person? I don't understand. Did you mean see? I'm confused. And I don't think he was targeting you in any regards. You targeted another person's comment calling them "pathetic" and he was obviously defending against your statement. If you know this situation personally, than I can say I understand your frustration but you attacked me when stating I was a hypocrite when I stated that until evidence is revealed about what happened than no one should say that any party is at fault. And if you seriously would like to "meet up" with me, than we have another issue to address.
Shim January 04, 2013 at 02:02 AM
And also if u read all of Fawkes comments on all the other other subjects u will c who is pathetic,trolling and a bully.... Please Fawkes would love to meet a person who hide behind a computer
Shim January 04, 2013 at 02:10 AM
What it comes down to is man who is involved in a accident is still in the icu.... I have been there since day one. I have been to the hospital and seen the tube in his throat and all the damages. I was there when he been going thru 6 hours of surgery... One else has... Until any of u seen a friend or love one like this....u should never assume anything... I made a comment about how it does not say anything above about drink or speeding but yet the mother has to say that...so I'm wrong for saying anything
have respect January 04, 2013 at 02:25 AM
And I understand that he is in the ICU and the impact that it has on everyone. I am going through the same ordeal with both parties. But again, you are stating untrue comments. The mother did not comment on anything in regards to the matter. If you are referring to the person with the same last name, than you need to stop assuming. And that is what I was trying to let everyone know from the get go, STOP ASSUMING. We are all (or should be) praying(keeping in our thoughts for those who are not religious) for the gentleman in ICU and everyone that has been impacted by this accident. Bullying and negativity is not what either party should want out of this article and until the evidence is revealed about the accident, we should not state anything from hearsay.
Fawkes January 04, 2013 at 02:41 AM
Anyone who makes threats left and right like you do is a coward and a bully. You are scum and its sad that the Internet gives people like you a forum to spew hate. I hope for your sake hell doesn't exist.
Shim January 04, 2013 at 02:54 AM
Someone who would look in the mirror...saw your post on other topics and u should listen to yourself and take some of your own advance...he'll does exist and I can't wait to c u there guess that's when we will meet...hide all u want behind that screen...that's all u have
Shim January 04, 2013 at 02:57 AM
It's a shame the the truck was pulling out of their own driveway, and the motorcycle had a skid mark of 150ft, and still impacting the driver door in more than 18 inches. I'm glad it was an innocent person, backing out of their own driveway, that is at fault, and not a speeding motorcyclist, doing more than 40mph on a 25mph road. It's a shame what happened to him, but drinking and speeding don't mix.. and when you hit someone else, for being careless, it's not the person(s) fault, that you hit them. Read the above comments cause they were left my mrs. Blumberg... If u read my comments after that u will c where I said she had no right to assume he was drinking speeding or being careless.... I'm not assuming anything I have been there and have heard and seeing everything first hand
Fawkes January 04, 2013 at 03:01 AM
You have no facts on your side yet you accuse the driver of the truck from day one. You've even admitted that you're very close to the bike driver, so you've clearly got a bias as to who is at fault, which calls into question every word that comes out of your mouth in regards to this. As for your above comment, it's exactly the kind of response I'd expect from someone like you. I'm not sure whether or not you're aware of this, but there are things to life other than trolling.
have respect January 04, 2013 at 03:31 AM
YOU ARE ASSUMING THAT THE COMMENT LEFT BY THAT PERSON IS THE MOTHER. You STATED "I made a comment about how it does not say anything above about drink or speeding but yet the mother has to say that..." AGAIN, I stated that you ASSUMED that comment was left by the mother and I know for a fact it was not. Definition of the word FACT:something that actually exists; reality; truth. Something known to exist or to have happened. a truth known by actual experience or observation; something known to be true. So if you want to continue with your obviously biased comments, go right ahead. I have not assumed anything in regards to the above article. I was not a participant in the actual accident and obviously you were not either. Therefore, I will not pass judgement against either parties in regards to texting/speeding/alcohol until FACTS are presented. My thoughts and prayers are with both families as well as with you.
Fawkes February 15, 2013 at 03:25 PM
How about an update on the story, like the fact that McGee was charged with a DUI and that it wasn't the driver of the car's fault like the troll Shim has pushed? Shim, you deserve to be sued for libel. And shame on the Patch for being unprofessional in this story, as it has allowed a young man's reputation to be tarnished by stupid readers like Shim without response.

Hello Everyone it's Jim McGee . Just had my 3rd brain operation , this time up in NYC If your gonna get hurt break a leg not the head. They are rebuilding me a piece at a time.

My grandmother used to tell us "Everyday above dirt is a good day" I thank everyone for their kind thoughts , all the other stuff will work itself out
Gina May 23, 2013 at 05:53 PM

Gina May 24, 2013 at 02:29 PM

Shim July 24, 2013 at 10:20 PM
Just a fyi to all the people on here... James McGee was not and I will say was not charge with DUI at all... So Fawkes get your facts straight since I knew the facts since day one.... Pathetic for all u people who said negative and untrue stories while a man laid in the hospital living day to day.... Love u both jimmy and Ann Marie always have and always will have your back...
Fawkes July 28, 2013 at 04:46 AM
Back for more propaganda, eh? You even admitted that you were biased because you knew the motorcyclist personally, so enough of your nonsense. You should be charged with libel for the vicious and cruel things you said about Mr. Blumberg and his family. I'd say shame on you, but clearly you know none.
Shim July 30, 2013 at 10:06 PM
Just following your lead Fawkes.... Shame on u for hiding behind a screen and not having the balls to meet me.... U are a piece of crap for not knowing the facts and I'm Karma and your day will be coming Fawkes hide all u want but in the end I will always have the last laugh at u :)
Shim July 30, 2013 at 10:08 PM
And shame on you fakes for all the cruel and terrible things u said about jimmy.... Glad u can sleep at night knowing that u are really a troll hiding.... Like I said still smiling....
Shim July 30, 2013 at 10:17 PM
Not even worth me making comments to Fawkes who is a small man with big unless words....in the end I sill will be smiling know the truth since day one... In the end jimmy is alive and the courts will do the rest and I will be smiling away Fawkes can't wait to c u in hell :)
Fawkes August 01, 2013 at 10:51 AM
What a thug you are. Nothing but nasty threats and criminal intent. Get a life instead of accusing some innocent young man of wrongdoing while some drunk on a motorcycle put himself and the young man in severe harm's way. You are a liar and a bully. I hope you're "smiling" from ear to ear, because that's all your shallow self has. As for not wanting to meet you (which is new to me as a tenet of Internet conversation - it actually seems to defeat the purpose), clearly after your past few violent posts, I have good reason. You're so irrational and dangerous that you're liable to shoot me or anyone else in the vicinity. You've been reported to the proper authorities and they can deal with you.
Shim August 01, 2013 at 05:28 PM
Still smiling pathetic Fawkes get your facts straight jimmy was not charge and didn't have alcohol in his system when he had the accident... Report me all u want cause all they have to do is also read all 80 comments on your other pages bullying people... Karma baby... Your day will come... U get talked to the way u talk to people... At least I don't have to hide behind the screen enjoy your miserable life cause I have a great life knowing the truth still smiling...
Fawkes August 01, 2013 at 05:49 PM
Excuse me, but I have NEVER made physical threats to anyone like you have repeatedly done. If you can't handle a debate then don't have one, especially when you know none of the relevant facts and are fueled only by emotion as you so clearly are. Grow up and learn to stop viciously attacking people just because you don't know how to lose.
Shim August 05, 2013 at 07:05 AM
Still smiling never made physical threats get it together Fawkes I said let's meet since u can hide a b a jerk behind a screen want to c what a little person u really r...I can handle a lot more then u...
Shim August 05, 2013 at 07:08 AM
And u gets the facts Fawkes where is your report or proof that he was charge for drinking... Or got a DUI..u have none cause the is none... The court has PROVEN that's he was not driving under the influence... So why don't u stop telling lies about people u don't know..
Fawkes August 05, 2013 at 04:51 PM
Go away, troll.
Shim August 10, 2013 at 07:21 AM
:) still smiling
Jim McGee October 25, 2013 at 10:27 AM
"Some drunk on a motorcycle" is that rite Fewkes ? "Put himself and a young man in severe harms way" Another Philly lawyer the world doesn't need. How about the kid pulled out without looking. He couldn't see a Harley full dresser and a big Dyna next to me. Give me a break! Put him in harms way....... Must have been real dangerous up in that big ass Dodge. I was a drunk biker? not even close ! You keep up your Philly law degree throwing around threats of libel ................ If I didn't know better I'd swear you were there that night , maybe in my blood stream .
