A West Deer man died Saturday morning in a motorcycle crash on Saxonburg Boulevard.

Richard Lutty, 59, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office.

Lutty reportedly was riding a motorcycle northbound at about 11:30 a.m. when he lost control. He fell from the bike and then slid under a cargo van traveling in the opposite direction, said West Deer patrolman Mike Shurina.

No one in the van was injured.

Shurina said an autopsy is scheduled today.
