Motorcyclist dies in head-on crash in Cambria


Niagara County Police are investigating a fatal accident that happened in Cambria late Monday night.

Police say it happened shortly after 11 p.m. A 23-year-old man was riding his motorcycle along Saunders Settlement Road when another vehicle driven by a 19-year-old woman crossed the center line and struck the man head on.

The man, later identified as Bradley Chawgo, 23 of Lockport, was ejected after the impact and came to rest in a nearby ditch, while his motorcycle became lodged under the other vehicle and caught fire.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. The female driver, later identified as Ajjada Amos of Niagara Falls, was transported to Mount St. Mary's Hospital for evaluation, but was uninjured.

No charges have been filed yet.
