Bay Shore Man Killed in Motorcycle Crash

An 18-year-old Bay Shore man was killed in a motorcycle crash early Saturday morning, Suffolk County police said.

James Barnett was riding a 2006 Honda motorcycle in East Farmingdale at 2:40 a.m. when he made a left turn from Central Avenue onto southbound New Highway and lost control, eventually striking a metal pole, police said.

Barnett sustained a serious head injury and was transported to St. Joseph Hospital in Bethpage where he was later pronounced dead, police said.

The motorcycle was impounded for a safety check.

Police did not say what caused Barnett to lose control.

The investigation is continuing, police said. Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call the First Squad at 631-854-8152.
