His passenger, a 29-year-old Hempfield woman, suffered severe injuries and was taken to UPMC Presbyterian. State police at Greensburg are withholding her name.

Smoker was traveling east on Route 30 in Derry Township in the right lane when the bike went off the road onto the shoulder, which is a raised embankment. The motorcycle traveled about 50 yards and crashed onto its side. The passenger fell onto the shoulder of the road. Smoker fell onto the road in the travel lane of Route 30. When he was lying on the road, he was hit twice by different vehicles.

An autopsy showed the cause of death was blunt force trauma.
