Two Motorcycle Accidents This Weekend

Two people were involved in separate motorcycle accidents this weekend. According to police, on Sunday around 10:30 AM at Exit 22, near Rye on I-95 a New Jersey man apparently had a medical incident while driving and lost control of his bike, which resulted in a crash involving two other motorcyclists from his group who were all riding to Connecticut together at the time. Police were investigating the cause of the crash, though reported that members of his club stated he had a preexisting heart condition that may have led to his collapse. The man, whose name has not been released, was taken to Greenwich Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. The other men involved were taken to Westchester Medical Center and Stamford Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Also on Sunday, around 6:00 PM a man crashed his motorcycle on Bear Mountain Bridge Road in Cortlandt. Police stated that the motorcyclist crashed into a rail, and went about 100-feet down an embankment where police had to rescue the man. He was airlifted to Westchester Medical Center and his condition has not been confirmed, though reports were released by the media last night that he passed away. Police are investigating the scene of the accident to determine the cause.
