Chuck Inman, the founder of the Battle Against Hunger Bike Ride, died as a result of injuries from a crash on Route 1 near Harrison Street last night.

Just after 10:15 p.m., Lorin Fisher of  Philadelphia was driving a 2010 Mack Truck northbound on Route 1.  Fisher rear-ended a 2013 Lexus driven by Inman of Princeton.  Inman’s Lexus was then pushed into a 2011 BMW driven by Roger Dashevsky of Princeton.

Fisher had a passenger in his truck.  Inman’s wife, Pam, was in the front passenger seat of the Lexus. All of the parties involved in the accident except Fisher where transported to the hospital. Dashevsky was treated and released.

Inman, 67, succumbed to his injuries at the hospital.  Pam Inman, 67, remains hospitalized with serious injuries.

The driver of the Mack truck, Lorin Fisher, has been charged with death by auto, aggravated assault, driving under the influence of alcohol, reckless driving, and failure to observe a red traffic signal. He is being lodged in the Mercer County Detention Center on $300,000 bail.

Chuck Inman, a member of St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Pennington, founded the Battle Against Hunger Bike Ride in 2003. The 200-mile ride from Gettysburg, Pa. to Trenton takes place in September each year. The ride, an interfaith effort, has raised more than $700,000 for charities that feed the hungry across New Jersey.  The Rescue Mission of Trenton, The Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, the Crisis Ministry, Jewish Family Services of Atlantic and Cape May Counties, and the Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey’s Jubilee Ministries are just some of the groups the ride supports.
