Motorcyclist dies in Bradford County crash

WYSOX – A male motorcyclist was killed Friday in a crash with a tractor trailer on Route 6 in Wysox Township around 10:30 a.m., according to state police at Towanda.

The man, whose identity has not yet been released by police, was attempting to turn his 1999 Harley Davidson Sportster right onto Route 6 at the intersection with Pipher Lane when he traveled into the east bound lane and lost control of the bike.

A 2005 Volvo tractor trailer traveling east on Route 6 was unable to stop and hit the motorcycle.

Traffic was detoured onto local streets until Route 6 was re-opened about mid-afternoon, according to the state Department of Transportation.
