Motorcyclist dies in Route 22 collision

Saturday, July 13, 2013, 1:16 a.m.

A Fairfield Township motorcyclist died in a vehicle crash in Indiana County Thursday evening, the county coroner's office said Friday.

Brad G. Heming, 54, was driving east on Route 22 in Burrell Township when a vehicle “pulled out of Old Farm Road attempting to cross Route 22 and into the path of Heming's Honda motorcycle,” according to a news release from Coroner Michael A. Baker's office.

Heming's motorcycle collided with the driver's side of a Dodge Dart, Baker's office said. The driver of that vehicle was not injured.

Heming was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, according to the coroner.

He sustained “blunt-force trauma to the head and neck” and was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:39 p.m., the coroner said.

An autopsy was scheduled for Friday.

State police are investigating the incident.

Kenneth A. Stuart Funeral Home in New Florence is handling Heming's funeral arrangements.
