A little more than two hours after this accident, another motorcyclist was injured in a crash on the 2700 block of Route 654 in Susquehanna Township. A pickup truck with a trailer may have been involved in the crash, police were told.
The truck was stopped by police on Maynard Street in the city. An investigation was ongoing Sunday night.
