A Washington County rider died overnight after his motorcycle struck a storm culvert.

Mark Shaffer, of Mount Pleasant, was riding his Harley-Davidson late Thursday night when he ran over a Western Avenue culvert in Chartiers.

The 38-year-old apparently was thrown from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead from blunt-force trauma at 12:40 a.m. Mr. Shaffer was not wearing a helmet, according to the county coroner.
