Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office deputies say the crash occurred just before 6:45 p.m. Sunday on Farrington Hollow Road in Cherry Creek.
A media release says a car was backing out of a driveway on the road and was struck by a northbound motorcycle. The operator of the motorcycle was transported to Brooks Memorial Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries. The identity of the motorcyclist has not been released at this time.
The driver of the car was identified as 47-year-old Jassen Sherman. He was cited for failure to yield the right of way when entering the roadway and is due back in the Town of Cherry Creek Court at a later date.
