Jeffrey L. Wakley was operating his motorcycle on West Law Road when he attempted to pass another motorcyclist. Apparently, he sideswiped the other motorcycle and lost control.
The article does not say but it appears the 11 year old boy was on Mr. Wakley’s motorcycle. Both Mr. Wakley and the boy were injured but the paper reports that neither injuries are life threatening. Mr. Wakley was transported to Hamot Hospital after the Erie motorcycle accident. The boy was life-flighted to a Pittsburgh hospital.
Both were wearing helmets in this North East motorcycle crash.
Pennsylvania motorcyclist safety resources are available in our Articles library .
