Erie crash: What happened?

Pennsylvania State Police troopers are looking into two traffic accidents involving motorcycles in the Erie region that claimed the lives of their operators less than an hour apart on Wednesday.

Anthony Culver, 52, a resident of Erie, was killed in a collision involving his Harley-Davidson Street Glide on Interstate 90 between the Interstate 86 and Route 89 exits in North East Township, according to state police in Erie. On Wednesday at around 4:20 p.m., the collision was reported.

When the motorcycle crossed over into the left lane and onto some gravel off the south shoulder, it is claimed that it was driving west in the right lane and was passing vehicles in the left lane.

According to state police, the motorcycle hit guide rail posts when it was unable to get back onto the road. Erie County Coroner’s Office reports that the motorist was declared deceased at the scene on Wednesday at 5:23 p.m.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said that after the accident, a section of I-90 westbound was temporarily stopped, and westbound traffic was diverted to use Routes 89 south and 86 west.

The accident’s proximity to the I-86 interchange serves as a reminder of the possible risks associated with fast driving and lane changes in congested regions.

After being transported to UPMC Hamot in Erie, the guy was declared dead at 2:38 in the morning.

The two-vehicle collision on Route 98 in Hayfield Township, Crawford County, was reported on Saturday at around 7:15 p.m. Rebecca Doughty, 39, of Meadville, was killed in the collision.
