Fatal motorcycle crash in Mayfair

A May­fair man was killed last week in a mo­tor­cycle crash about four blocks from his home.

Fran­cis Goo­droe, 39, of the 2700 block of Levick St., died after his cycle col­lided with a car at Har­bison and Rob­bins av­en­ues at about 8:30 p.m., po­lice said. Goo­droe was rid­ing a 2001 Honda north­bound on Har­bison when a south­bound car began turn­ing left onto Rob­bins. When the mo­tor­cycle struck the 2001 In­fin­ity, Goo­droe was thrown in­to the street. He suffered fatal head in­jur­ies and died at the scene.

Po­lice Chief In­spect­or Scott Small re­portedly said that Goo­droe was not wear­ing a hel­met.

Po­lice did not re­lease the name of the oth­er driver, who was not in­jured and re­mained at the scene for first re­spon­ders to ar­rive. There were no pas­sen­gers with either vehicle.

Both vehicles had green lights, po­lice said. No charges were filed. An in­vest­ig­a­tion con­tin­ues. ••
