Motorcycle crash sets off pleas for safety
Warmer weather brings out bikers, including
one hurt Sunday

"(June 13, 2006) — A motorcycle accident Sunday
in Steuben County has renewed focus on safety
for both riders and drivers.
Ronald R. Clark, 34, of Canisteo, Steuben
County, was driving north on County Road 29 in
Hornellsville at 8:45 p.m. when he apparently
lost control of his motorcycle and struck an
earthen embankment, according to Steuben County
Clark was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital,
where he was listed in guarded condition Monday,
according to a hospital spokeswoman.
As the weather warms, thousands of
motorcyclists, who'll share space with cars,
will get back on the road, which haven't seen
many bikes since last summer.
"We've got one light, two wheels and we're a lot
smaller," said Joe Crispino, a spokesman for
Monroe County ABATE, American Bikers Aimed
In Monroe County, at least six motorcyclists
were killed in 2005. Already this year, Freddie
Cosme, 23, of Rochester died of multiple
injuries after his bike collided with a van in
the city on April 8.
Several other motorcyclists have been injured in
crashes throughout western New York.
According to the state Department of Motor
Vehicles, there were nearly 4,900 people injured
and 151 people killed in more than 4,500
motorcycle accidents in 2004, the most recent
year statistics were available."
