On Wednesday morning, a 52-year-old motorcyclist involved in a collision at Rochester Townline Road and County Road 46 died at the scene of the crash.
Emergency crews responded to the crash around 11:25 a.m. and found that a motorcyclist had collided with a pickup truck that pulled into the cyclists path from a stop sign. Investigators are still working on determining exactly what happened. It is unclear if the driver of the pickup was injured in the crash. Neither driver's name has been released.
Images from the scene show the motorcycle laying on the ground while the front end of the pickup appears to be damaged.
