The motorcyclist was riding with a friend on Route 46 adjacent to the the Clifton-Little Falls borde. A Little Falls officer observed them driving erratically and attempted to pull them over. One stopped, but the other attempted to flee.
He had crashed his 2007 Kawaksaki Ninja into a concrete barrier, and despite wearing a helmet, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police believe he crashed after being unable to negotiate a turn at the rate of speed he was traveling. Preliminary records show that the motorcyclist was not licensed to drive a motorcycle. The other motorcyclist was questioned and released.
