Sewickley man dies in Route 28 motorcycle accident

Sunday, July 27, 2014, 8:27 a.m.
 

A Sewickley man died when he crashed his motorcycle on Route 28 in O'Hara, state police said.

George P. Williams, 65, lost control of his Harley-Davidson Street Glide at 8:35 p.m. Saturday on a right curve while traveling southbound near the RIDC Park exit, troopers said. The motorcycle went off the west side of the highway, striking a curve sign and sliding through the grass median before hitting a guard rail. Williams landed on the off ramp.

Emergency workers transported Williams to UPMC St. Margaret near Aspinwall, where he was pronounced dead at 9:26 p.m.

State police reported Williams failed to drive the motorcycle at a safe speed. A thunderstorm moved through the region at the time. Troopers continue to investigate the wreck, which closed Route 28 until about 11:30 p.m.
