A New Jersey man died Wednesday after a motorcycle crash on Route 22 in Northampton County.

Palmer Township police Chief Wayne Smith said the man, identified as David Walton, 59, of Phillipsburg, was riding a motorcycle eastbound just before 4 p.m. near 25th Street.

Walton approached traffic that had slowed from congestion caused by an earlier crash on Route 33, according to the chief.

Walton’s motorcycle skidded, and he lost control of it. He and the motorcycle slid on the road until they hit a box truck, Smith said.

Walton was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died from his injuries.

No other injuries were reported.

Parts of Route 22 were closed near the crash while police reconstructed the accident. The roads reopened about 7:45 p.m.
