Cyclist suffered ‘major’ injuries

NEW CASTLE — A motorcyclist whose bike crashed on Highland Avenue Tuesday night suffered major injuries, New Castle police reported.

Steven G. Addy, 62, of 135 E. Hillcrest Ave., was attempting to round a downhill curve in the area of Stewart Place and Grant Street around 7:45 p.m. when his left running board hit the road, according to police. Addy lost control of the bike and hit the west curb, then his bike fell and skidded on the curb.

Investigators noted 229 feet of road marks from the point of impact to where the bike stopped. Witnesses told police Addy had been traveling too fast to negotiate the bend and he lost control, hit the curb and rode his Harley Davidson on its side.

Police said Addy was not wearing a helmet but had on approved eyewear.

Addy was taken to Jameson Hospital, then to St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown. Additional medical information was not available yesterday.

The motorcycle was towed.
