Elizabeth Township motorcycle accident victim in fair condition

Wednesday, July 10, 2013, 2:41 a.m.
 

Lincoln police continue to investigate a motorcycle accident from last week that hospitalized a local rider.

Charles Motte, 50, of Elizabeth Township was flown to UPMC Presbyterian on Thursday after his motorcycle crashed along W. Smithfield Street at 7:19 p.m.

Authorities said Motte sustained numerous injuries to his head and body. He was listed in fair condition on Tuesday.

Lincoln police Sgt. Cliff LaFever said police are trying to determine what caused the single-vehicle accident. He said anyone with information about the crash should call police at 412-751-7155.

Motte was arrested in Elizabeth Township four days before the crash for allegedly firing a shot at a group of juveniles who were at his home and for allegedly shouting a racial slur at one of the teens.

Motte was charged with two counts each of aggravated assault, attempted assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment of another person and one count of ethnic intimidation.

He was released from Allegheny County Jail on July 2 after posting $50,000 bail and was scheduled to have a preliminary hearing on Monday.
