A motorcycle accident on State Route 14A in Yates County Saturday night left Erik Schuerholz, 55, with multiple injuries.
Schuerholz, a resident of Penn Yan, was heading north near Milo Center Road when he attempted to overtake several cars.
Preliminary findings from the first responders suggest that excessive speed combined with the rumble strips caused him to lose control of his motorcycle.
Schuerholz was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital, receiving treatment for back pain and lacerations to his hip, knee, and hand.
Authorities have indicated that charges are pending as the investigation continues.
