A motorcyclist remained in critical condition Tuesday following a crash on Route 80 in Hackensack.

Michael Barot, 41, of the Ridgewood section of Queens was headed east in the highway's local lanes when his Yamaha collided with the vehicle between the Green and Hudson street exits shortly after 10 p.m. Saturday, New Jersey State Police Trooper Charles Marchan said.

The motorcycle overturned, ejecting Barot, he said.

The married father of two -- 14 and 9 years old -- works at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, said his cousin, who was ahead of Barot on another cycle when the crash occurred.

Barot was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center's trauma unit with critical injuries.

The New Jersey State Police Fatal Accident Investigation Unit was investigating, Marchan said.
