With Spring here remember that there will be an increase in motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic on the roads.
Reports from the Carlisle Sentinel today are that a Perry County man from Newport was killed and a woman seriously injured after a motorcycle crash on Route 34 in Oliver Township, Perry County last night, march 13, 2012. According to the Pennsylvania State Police, Joe Baker was traveling north on Route 34 on his 2004 Harley-Davidson and was attempting to drive on a right curve when he left the lane of travel, went into the southbound lane and exited the north side of the roadway.
The motorcycle traveled about 300 feet through nearby yards, striking a yard swing and then began to tumble across the yard, throwing both Baker and his passenger, Christine Crater of Newport. Baker was killed and Crater suffered major injuries.
