WATSON — A Lyons Falls man has been identified as the victim in Sunday morning’s fatal motorcycle crash in the town of Watson.

State police said Kyle L. Riesel, 24, was driving south on Pine Grove Road on a 2008 Honda motorcycle when he crossed into the opposite lane and hit an oncoming pickup truck driven by Floyd E. Farney, 70, Lowville. He was ejected, coming to rest on the side of the road, and was pronounced dead at the scene by Lewis County District Attorney Leanne K. Moser, also the county coroner.

Police said Mr. Farney saw the motorcycle while approaching the crest of a hill and took evasive action but was unable to avoid the collision.

An investigation into the cause and manner of death is continuing, police said.
