BERGEN, NY-- A Monroe County man is dead following a motorcycle accident in the Town of Bergen.
The accident happened around noon Monday on Route 19.
Deputies say a motorcycle driven by Gregory P. Healy, 28, of N. Chili, was traveling north on Route 19 when he tried to pass an SUV also traveling north.
Investigators say Healy's motorcycle hit the rear tire of the SUV causing the motorcycle to tip and hit a guardrail. Healy was ejected from the motorcycle and died at the scene.
The driver of the SUV, Denine Scott of Batavia, was not hurt.
Officials say Healy only had a motorcycle learner's permit and that excessive speed and driver inexperience led to the crash.
