JACKSON TOWNSHIP — Authorities have released the name of a man who died after a fatal motorcycle crash in Snyder County this weekend.

According to a release from State Police, a 49-year-old William Adams of Mason, West Virginia was killed sometime between Saturday and Sunday on Route 204, north of Fetter Road, near Selinsgrove.

Authorities believe he was riding his Harley Davidson northbound when he failed to negotiate a left-hand curve, traveling over an embankment. He proceeded to strike a speed limit sign, a bush, and multiple small trees before coming to rest in a drainage ditch.

When crews arrived, Adams was pronounced dead on scene.

    People stop with the cruel remarks. Our family & his friends don’t deserve this while we are mourning the loss of him.

    One headlight on a motorcycle isn’t adequate for night riding. The accident description sounded horrible. Poor guy.

      Where did the article say the bike only had one headlight? Then how do you attribute the hundreds of thousands of event-free night rides for the last 50 years? Using your logic – any car that has a light out will go flying off the road out of control once the sun goes down.
