A Somerset County motorcyclist was killed in an accident at a Route 30 intersection about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in Quemahoning Township.

Shawn Luther Hadix, 35, of Central City died after his motorcycle hit two vehicles at the intersection of Route 30 and South Pine Avenue, according to a news release by state police at Somerset.
