ALEXANDRIA, N.Y. (WHEC) — A Spencerport man is dead after his bike was struck by a car in Jefferson County.

The New York State Police say that 63-year-old Glenn Hawn was traveling south on the shoulder of State Route 12 near Alexandria just after 6 p.m. on Thursday when he turned in front of a car that was also heading southbound. The operator of the car was unable to avoid striking him. 

Hawn was evacuated by helicopter to Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse, where he succumbed to his injuries.

Troopers say they do not know why he turned into the path of the vehicle, but they have determined no alcohol or drugs were involved in the incident. The driver of the car was not injured and no charges will be filed against her.
