DILLINER, Pa. (AP) – State police say a western Pennsylvania man has been killed when the motorcycle he was riding hit the rear of the moving car driven by his wife.

Troopers from the Waynesburg barracks say 22-year-old James Nicklow was riding behind 37-year-old Rikki Nicklow’s vehicle on Route 88 when he hit the left rear of her car as she was turning left onto another road.

Police say James Nicklow was thrown from the motorcycle and injured, dying a short time later at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, West Virginia.

The crash occurred shortly after 8 p.m. Thursday in Dunkard Township. Police say the couple lived nearby.

Dunkard is about 60 miles south of Pittsburgh, along the West Virginia border.
