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.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
