State Police officials say 27 year-old Nicholas Knauf failed to negotiate a curve on Riverside Drive, approaching Oil City.  Knauf’s bike traveled through the curve and through several yards before it slammed into a utility pole.  Knauf was ejected, and rolled to a stop in a yard.

Injuries were described by troopers as “moderate.”
