Motorcycle Rolls Into Stream

A 1985 Honda 1200 Goldwing rolled into a small stream along Grist Mill Road on Sunday, October 12, after its driver accidentally left his kickstand down. According to state police, Earl R. Shockey, 65, of Waynesboro was pulled onto the Dublin Township roadway from a parking area with his kickstand still down. Once back on the road, the kickstand got caught on the pavement, causing the motorcycle to travel back on the berm where it struck a tree and rolled into the stream. Shockey was wearing a helmet and suffered minor injuries in the 3:10 p.m. accident.
