Point Boro Man Killed in Howell crash

Boro man's motorcycle was hit by large SUV


A Point Borough man was killed when his motorcycle collided with a vehicle in Howell, police said.

Scott Incalcatera, 41, was killed when his motorcycle was struck near the intersection of Route 547 and Miller Road on Saturday, police said.

Isidor S. Palmeri, 35, of Jackson was attempting to make a left turn from the northbound lane in his 2013 GMC Yukon when he struck Incalcatera who was traveling south, said Howell Police Sgt.  Joseph Markulic.

Markulic said Incalcatera, who was not originally identified pending family notification, attempted to stop and put the motorcycle on its side before being hit by the truck. The motorcycle was identified as a 2002 Suzuki GSXR 750.

Incalcatera was pronounced dead at the scene. Palmeri was taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center where he was treated and released. A passenger in his vehicle was not injured in the crash. 

Also responding to the crash were personnel from MONOC, the Ramtown Fire Department and First Aid Squads, the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office, the Monmouth County SCART and the Monmouth County Road Department.

Markulic said summonses are pending investigation. The crash is being investigated by the Howell Police Department and anyone with information about the crash is encouraged to call Markulic at 732-938-4575 ext. 2831 or Officer Scott Brooks at ext. 2185.

Motorcyles move fast from lane to lane and often are not visible.

I normally just read the patch and do not comment but I had to comment on this we cant say it enough (WATCH OUT FOR MOTORCYCLES) We are not talking about reckless drivers and besides there ARE reckless drivers in cars too , read the story this man was going straight and he should have had the right of way and anything you ride in is not guartented to stop you from getting hurt or worse Im sure family and friends do not want to hear negative comments so if thats all your going to write dont write at all BelmarKT I am sorry for your loss and all of Scotts family and friends as well

This is very sad, and I truly feel for the victim and his family. That said, I have seen motorcyclists do some very stupid and dangerous things (not saying that is the case here). I've seen them weave in and out of lanes on the Parkway, right in front of me, giving me no time to react, ride on the shoulder of the road, even pop wheelies while in traffic. And my favorite one: passing on the right. How about EVERYONE pay attention and drive safely. Driving in this state seems to be getting more dangerous by the day.

This man had the RIGHT OF WAY I was behind the accident a few cars back The woman that ran out of her car to check for vitals tried frantically To get a response from Scott , me and her were on our way back from the same birthday party arriving at accident sene. She before me. I know details and The driver of the Truck was chatting on the phone while driving. Not paying Attention to the motorcycle and running this poor man down. Mansladuer it's a good case!! Witnesses were at sene!! Scott was driving straight with no turns made crossing a cross road that truck decided to turn on at the same time as Scott. He was NOT speeding or weaving Between others! The guy in ukkon is 100% AT FAULT! Took a innosant persons life!!! RIP Scott!!!

Motorcycles have the same right of way as other vehicles, no more, no less

Take a few minutes and correct your spelling and grammer before you post. You might seem more credible that way.

leslie martins....."anyone with information about the crash is encouraged to call Markulic at 732-938-4575 ext. 2831 or Officer Scott Brooks at ext. 2185." Have you?

I am a friend of Scott. He was a truly remarkable, kind, gentle man. The key word here is "man". He was not some "boy" who races up and down the highway, ripping between cars and lanes. He was a professional engineer and respected his machine. His attempt to "lay" his bike down as this careless person turned in front of him should speak volumns of how he was responsible and not some reckless jerk on a bike. He was trying a defensive move to save his life. You should be ashamed of yourself for making these stupid comments. but you won't because you are one of those asses who probably practice the typical me first and i'm way more important attitude. God Bless you to his parents and his wife of only a little over a year.

@blessed3times, I agree whole heartily with your statements. Scott was a nice gentle man...He was not a careless driver, he has been riding bikes for years... He was responsible in every way including driving... He was going straight on his bike, the very large 2013 GMC YUKON was making a left hand turn, not attempting to make a left, Anyone going straight has the right away, wether it was a bike or car, every driver should know this. To me it appears the driver of this 2013 GMC YUKON, wanted to beat him to the turn, he wanted to feel the power of his new truck, cutting Scott off. Scott turned his bike knowing he had know other choice to try to beat this carless driver...now someone mentioned this guy was on the phone. The police should be all over that if that is the case. @King Neptune, you sound like King ASS...who cares about spelling and grammar, get a life.

Great Guy...Taken Way to soon!
stephanie October 28, 2012 at 08:41 PM
may scott rest in peace and god bless his heart, but the driver didn't mean to hurt scott , i personally know the driver he is a great guy , he would never hurt or kill anyone. the event was accident.
blessed3times November 14, 2012 at 02:08 PM
@stephanie... i'm sure you're friend is a great guy and i'm sure he didn't set out to "kill" anyone that day. the problem is, he did kill someone that day. a very sweet, cherished man who was a newly wed. his wife will never hear his laugh again, or see his smile. we will never see the great things that scott was sure to accomplish. this all because of a foolish and selfish act of having to beat someone because they were in a bigger vehicle and in their own mind, way more important.

Scott was my college roommate's brother, and an all around nice guy. As other's have said, an engineer, newlywed, and safe motorcycle driver. If the Yukon driver was on the phone, some charges should be filed. Reckless driver. RIP Scott, you are deeply missed.
Karen Serenkin April 17, 2013 at 05:14 AM
Exactly my thoughts. He was my dear friend for nearly 15 years and I want to make sure the responsible parties are held responsible. I have become great friends with his lovely bride Denise. Yes, it was an accident. LET THIS BE A LESSON LEARNED : don't text or talk unless its thru Bluetooth type devices while driving. I see it constantly. ITS AGAINST THE LAW!! There is a reason for the warning. My big brother Scottie was taken from us. Not fair.
