ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10)- A motorcycle crash took the life of a 69-year-old man from Vergennes, Vermont, on September 14, according to the Vermont State Police. Afterward, State Police took to social media saying motorcycle fatalities were up in the state 40% over a six-year average.
NEWS10 wondered if fatal motorcycle crashes in New York were also up, so we contacted multiple state agencies including the Department of Motor Vehicles and the New York State Police who directed us to the Traffic Safety Statistical Repository (TSSR).
