Joshua Valentine was heading east on Route 46 on a Harley-Davidson when he and a Nissan Pathfinder both tried to turn left into the ACI Truck Stop, New Jersey State Police Trooper Alejandro Goez.

Valentine entered the westbound lane and struck the driver's side of the SUV around 5:50 p.m., near mile post 2.6 in Knowlton Township, Goez said.

Valentine was ejected while the Nissan driver suffered minor injuries, the trooper said.

Valentine described himself on his social media pages as an adventurer and survival specialist. He was also the owner of outdoor and sporting goods company "Embrace the Animal."

He was remembered by those who knew him as being extremely humble.

The crash was under investigation as of Saturday.
