A motorcyclist was killed and a driver injured in collision Saturday evening in Somerset County.
State police said 22-year-old Austin Carl-Armstrong Coddington was driving a 2004 Honda CRF 450 dirt bike south on Geiger Road in Friedens about 6:10 p.m. when he veered into the oncoming lane and hit a 2005 Dodge Caravan driven by Karrie Lynn Smith, 33, of Somerset.
Mr. Coddington was not wearing a helmet and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Ms. Smith was taken to Conemaugh Hospital, where she remained this afternoon, Trooper Scott J. Kemerer said, though he could not provide details on the extent of her injuries.
The investigation is ongoing.
