Pennsylvania family blames fatal motorcycle wreck on PennDOT’s failure to fix ditch
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is facing questions about whether its work on a narrow, twisty state road caused a fatal motorcycle wreck.
Leslie Gingrich was riding her Harley in Schuylkill County on June 4 when she hit a gully spanning both lanes of the road.
Gingrich was rushed to a hospital but succumbed to her injuries.
A PennDOT crew had excavated a trench at the site and filled it with stone, but residents say the stone washed away, leaving a ditch.
Residents say PennDOT knew about the hazard but did nothing to fix it. PennDOT says it’s investigating.Copyright 2022 Nexstar Media Inc. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.
