Byron man killed in motorcycle accident on Thruway

posted by Howard B. Owens in accident, byron, thruway.

Wet pavement is most likely to blame for a one-motorcycle accident that took the life of a Byron man late Saturday afternoon.

Kevin P. Stearns, 29, of 7862 Byron Road, Byron, was pronounced dead at the scene by County Coroner Jack Taylor at 5:55 p.m..

Stearns was reportedly driving his 1995 Honda motorcycle eastbound on the Thruway near mile marker 402, just east of Exit 48-A in Pembroke, when he moved from the passing lane to the right to pass another vehicle. The bike reportedly skidded out of control and hit a guard rail.

Neither speed nor alcohol were a factor, according to a State Police spokesman, who described the roadway as slick with rain at the time.

The accident occurred at 4:50 p.m.. No other vehicles were directly involved.
