Motorcyclist, 86, killed in crash

BEEKMANTOWN (AP) – State police said an 86-year-old motorcyclist is dead after driving into the path of an SUV in northern New York.

They say Leo Cote of Chazy had pulled over on the shoulder in the Clinton County town of Beekmantown when he tried to get back on the road at about 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

Troopers said his motorcycle was hit by a 2008 Ford Edge in what has been ruled an accident.

Cote was pronounced dead Monday at a hospital.

The SUV driver wasn’t reported injured.
