A 23-year-old motorcyclist died early Friday after driving into the rear of a car, his body striking the rear window and a guard rail before coming to rest on the side of the road.
Police said Konieczski's bike broke the rear axle of the car. The bike slid 300 feet after the crash, police said, before coming to a stop near an overpass at Liberty Street.
The driver of the car, 38-year-old Michael Porter, was treated at Provena St. Joseph Hospital and released. He was later detained on a charge of driving on a suspended license, the Courier-News reported.
