ERIE COUNTY, NY – A 28-year-old man from West Seneca was hospitalized with serious injuries Monday afternoon after a motorcycle wreck on State Route 5 in Hamburg, reports WIVB 4.

The incident occurred on the westbound highway (Lake Shore Road) near Lakewood Avenue, just northeast of Wanakah Beach. Town of Hamburg Police and emergency crews responded to the scene shortly after 1:25 p.m.
