Elba man dies of injuries from motorcycle accident last week

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

A motorcyclist who apparently lost control of his bike on Swamp Road in Byron last Wednesday has died as a result of injuries sustained in the accident.

Thomas Legler, 49, of North Byron Road, Elba, died at Strong Memorial Hospital.

Legler was reportedly wearing a helmet, but it was not a Department of Transportation-approved safety helmet.

Deputies investigating the accident concluded that speed was a factor, but there is no evidence Legler was drinking prior to the accident.
