A Northampton County motorcyclist was injured in a crash in Carbon County on Sept. 29.
State police at Lehighton said Brandon J. Rondish, 22, of Bath, was driving a 2002 Yamaha R6 eastbound about 5:20 p.m. along Lower Smith Gap Road in Lower Towamensing Township, and attempting to negotiate a left curve when he lost control.
The bike laid down on its side and slid before coming to rest. Rondish was taken by Palmerton ambulance to the Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH), Salisbury Township, for treatment of what troopers called moderate injuries. Troopers said Rondish was cited for driving a vehicle at a (un) safe speed.
