Ladder causes bad motorcycle wreck

MIDDLEBURG – In Snyder County, an extension ladder flew off a pick-up truck–and caused a motorcycle accident–a Beaver Springs man was seriously injured the subsequent motorcycle crash on Route 522 yesterday afternoon. State police say 43-year-old Michael Zimmerman was traveling south on Route 522 near Middleburg when a ladder fell off a pickup truck ahead of him.

Zimmerman tried to stop abruptly and was thrown from the motorcycle. He was flown to Geisinger Medical Center with major injuries and is listed in serious condition. The crash is still under investigation–no charges have been filed–troopers are not identifying the owner of the ladder. (Ali Stevens)
