When emergency responders arrived on the scene they say they found the motorcycle had gone down an embankment.  The driver, later identified as 55-year-old Brett A. Vansant of Macomb, New York, had been ejected from the motorcycle.

Mr. Vansant was pronounced deceased at the scene.

According to a written release from the New York State Police, their preliminary investigation led to the discovery that Mr. Vansant "was traveling north on County Route 22 when he failed to negotiate a left turn in the roadway. The motorcycle subsequently traveled off the east shoulder of the roadway and down an embankment causing Mr. Vansant to be ejected."
