Livingston County N.Y. - A motorist and a neighbor were eyewitnesses to a harrowing motorcycle crash on Route 36 last Saturday evening, June 16 - after which they saw the motorcyclist draw a gun and shoot himself.
Harland Brown of Elmira informed The County News that he was towing a newly purchased small flatbed trailer from Buffalo back to his home. At around 10 p.m. he was westbound on Route 36 in Sonyea when he experienced engine failure in his 1991 Civic and was forced to pull over to the side of the highway.
"I looked both ways before I scooted across the street and didn't see anything except a faint glare of light in the distance," he said. "I know [the sound of] Harley Davidsons, but I never heard a Harley coming. Just all of a sudden there was the bike wadded up with my trailer."
*Unsubstantiated scuttlebutt among local EMT community cites the victim as a member of the Red Devils MC, Syracuse but this cannot be confirmed at this time.
