July 10, 2010

HAGERSTOWN -- A Hagerstown man died Saturday morning after crashing his motorcycle in the 500 block of Chestnut Street in Hagerstown, according to a Hagerstown Police Department press release.

Chad Daniel Sweigert, 23, of Summit Avenue, died at Washington County Hospital, Sgt. C.F. Woodring said.

Police responded to the accident scene at 10:51 a.m. and later determined that Sweigert was traveling south when he appeared to lose control of a 1998 Suzuki GSX-R motorcycle and "laid the bike down in the middle of the roadway," Woodring said.

According to a preliminary investigation by accident reconstructionists, speed appeared to be a contributing factor to the accident, Woodring said.
