A Greensburg man was killed in a motorcycle accident early Monday morning in Hempfield Township.
State police at Greensburg said Joseph S. Foti, of 1020 Saybrook Drive, was driving his 1992 Honda CBR 600 west on Skidmore Road near Brinkerton Road shortly after midnight when the crash occurred.
While Foti was attempting to negotiate a right-hand curve, he lost control of the motorcycle, crossed the eastbound lane, traveled off the roadway and struck a tree, police said.
Foti was taken to Westmoreland Regional Hospital in Greensburg, where he was pronounced dead at 12:40 a.m.
Westmoreland County Deputy Coroner Joe Musgrove said he died of injuries to the head, neck and chest. Police said he was wearing a helmet.
