NEWVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a motorcycle crash on the turnpike in central Pennsylvania has claimed the life of an off-duty Philadelphia police officer.

Police said 33-year-old Seth Stellfox was an 11-year veteran of the force assigned to the 39th district in northwest Philadelphia.

Officials in Cumberland County said Tuesday’s crash occurred on the Pennsylvania Turnpike near mile marker 206 in the Newville area.

The coroner’s office said Stellfox was wearing a helmet when his motorcycle struck a guardrail, but he was thrown from the vehicle and pronounced dead of multiple blunt force injuries.
