ERWIN, N.Y. (AP) - State police say a western New York man killed in a motorcycle crash earlier this week had been clocked going more than 100 mph shortly before the accident.

Police say a trooper conducting speed enforcement clocked the biker going 107 mph around 7:45 p.m. Monday in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 86 near Exit 42 in the Steuben (stoo-BEHN’) County town of Erwin, 75 miles southeast of Rochester.

The trooper attempted to catch up to the motorcyclist but he kept going at a high rate of speed.

Police say the biker crashed on a curve near Exit 43 outside Corning, crossed the center grass median, hit a guard rail and was ejected from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Troopers say the biker has been identified as 27-year-old Albert Ventry of Niagara Falls, New York.
