GORHAM, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a 34-year-old man died after he was thrown from his motorcycle in western New York.

The Ontario County Sheriff’s Office says Christopher Fleischman’s motorcycle struck a car from behind in Gorham Saturday night. The Newark man was thrown from the motorcycle and pronounced dead at the scene.

Deputies are investigating, but they say speed appears to be a factor in the crash.

It’s unclear if the 78-year-old driver of the vehicle hit by the motorcycle was injured.
