Florence, NY (July 5, 2019) – On Friday, July, 5th, police were immediately called to the scene of a fatal motorcycle crash that took place on Wolcott Hill Road in the town of Florence. According to State Police in Sylvan Beach, 26-year-old Brandon E. Humphrey, of Camden, tragically lost his life in the accident that occurred at 1:08 p.m.
Police stated that Humphrey had been traveling on a 2015 Harley Davidson motorcycle when he ended up at the bottom of an embankment off the roadway for unknown reasons. Following a preliminary investigation, it is believed that Humphrey may have gone off the road and struck a tree. However, the accident remains under investigation.
