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 deputies.

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 Toward Education.

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."
