JACKSON TOWNSHIP — A Jackson Township motorcyclist was killed when he collided with an ambulance taking an elderly woman to the hospital late last night, authorities said.

Charles Childs, 27, was riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle on North Hope Chapel Road shortly before midnight when he crossed the center line and hit the southbound ambulance, police said.

The crew from the Jackson First Aid Squad immediately jumped out of the ambulance to assist Childs, authorities said. He was later pronounced dead at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune.

The 78-year-old woman being transported by the rescue squad to Kimball Medical Center in Lakewood was transferred to a second ambulance, police said. Neither the 22-year-old Jackson First Aid Squad ambulance driver nor the two rescue squad members were hurt.
