Hamilton Police car

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — A 30-year-old man from Mays Landing was injured in a dirt bike crash Saturday, police said.

Bryan Gillis, 30, of Mays Landing, was traveling on a dirt bike Saturday along a wooded trail just off Leipzig Avenue near the Atlantic City Expressway when he struck a log obscured by high grass, police said in a news release.

He was thrown over the handlebars, hit his head and went unconscious. He was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, police said.

Gillis was able to contact a family member once he regained consciousness, and he was taken to the side of the road to wait for police and medical attention.

Police responded to the report of the dirt bike crash at 7:08 p.m. Saturday, but it was unknown how long Gillis was unconscious, police said.

Gillis was taken to AtlantiCare Medical Center, City Campus, with injuries not considered life-threatening. The Township of Hamilton Rescue Squad and AtlantiCare Paramedics also worked at the scene.
