PEMBROKE — An Attica man who was thrown off his motorcycle, then struck by another vehicle in an accident Friday night, was flown by Mercy Flight to Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo with serious injuries, the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office reported that night.
Deputies responded to the three-vehicle accident near 9114 Route 77 after dispatchers received the call at 8:58 p.m. Travis R. Hartloff, 26, of Attica was riding a 1983 Yamaha motorcycle south on Route 77 behind a red 2009 Honda Pilot driven by Garrett A. Stevenson, 20, of Clarence. Two passengers were in the vehicle: Samantha P. Kolbert, 18, of Cheektowaga and Hope E. Stevenson, 17, of Clarence. The sheriff’s office said the Stevenson vehicle was turning right into Sprinkles Cemetery when the motorcycle struck it from behind.
Hartloff was thrown off the motorcycle and into the middle of the road. He was then struck by an unidentified vehicle, believed to be a Hyundai Sedan. The sedan fled the scene, heading south on Route 77, before patrols arrived. No one in the Honda Pilot was injured.
The accident is still under investigation. Anyone with information on the sedan believed to be involved should call the county Sheriff’s Office at (585) 345-3000. Sgt. Andrew Hale, Sgt. Jason Saile, Investigator Joseph Loftus, Deputy Kyle Krzemien and Deputy Brock Cummins are investigating.
