Bicyclist killed when he crashed down a steep road

STONY POINT – A man in his 50s was killed Saturday morning while riding a bicycle down a very steep portion of Buckberg Road in the Town of Stony Point.

The man, whose name police did not immediately release, was not a resident of Rockland County. He was traveling at 9:30 in a group of about eight riders, each going down the hill approaching Mott Farm Road when his bike left the roadway and crashed into a wooded area.

Police said there is no reason to believe that any other bicyclist or vehicle was involved and nothing appears to be suspicious.

Speed, road terrain and condition and mechanical failure of the bike will be considered by detectives as well as an autopsy to be conducted by the Rockland County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The Rockland County Sherriff’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation responded along with Stony Point Town Police.

Anyone who may have witnessed the accident is asked to call the Stony Point Police Detective Division at 845-786-2422.
