Man, 52, dies in crash near Schiller Avenue.

Suffolk County police detectives are investigating a motorcycle crash that killed a Middle Island man Monday.

It just doesn't sound right at 52 losing control of a cycle on 25. Maybe there was some kind of failure - tire, brakes, or fuel oil on the pavement. My prayers are with him. Richard Colli in Rocky Point.

Hmmm... How did the victim get to the hospital. Transported by... horse and buggy? Once sagain you leave out the people who did the hard work of trying to resuscitate the gentleman. Perhaps you would like to recognize those hardworking volunteers?
