McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. - A Needmore, Pa., man was killed Friday when his motorcycle hit the side of another vehicle, according to police.

William Bradley, 57, was pronounced dead at the scene, Pennsylvania State Police Trooper David Julock said.

The driver of the car, a 17-year-old girl from McConnellsburg, was airlifted to Conemaugh Hospital in Johnstown, Pa., for treatment. Julock said she was in critical condition Friday night, but that he had not received an update on her condition Saturday.

Police did not release the girl's name.

The accident happened at 3:55 p.m. on Sipes Mill Road in Licking Creek Township, three-tenths of a mile south of Forrestdale Road, police said.

The girl was northbound in a 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse when, for an unknown reason, the car ran off the right edge of the road, Julock said. She tried to regain control by steering to the left, which caused the car to spin counterclockwise and cross the center line, Julock said.

Bradley, who was southbound on a 2003 Harley-Davidson motorcycle, hit the passenger side of the Mitsubishi when it crossed into his lane, Julock said. He was wearing a helmet and the driver of the car was wearing her seat belt, Julock said.

The accident remains under investigation.
