UPDATED: Motorcyclist Killed in Street Road Crash

Kyle Schwab, 22, of Trevose, was killed in the wreck. The victim was an Archbishop Wood graduate.

Saturday, 9:15 a.m.: The victim has been identified as 22-year-old Trevose resident Kyle Schwab, police told Patch Saturday morning. The victim's father is a police officer in Bensalem.

Schwab was a graduate of Archbishop Wood High School in Warminster and, according to social media, had worked as a service technician and apprentice at Champion Chimney and Masonry in Philadelphia.

As of Saturday morning, the female driver of the Lexus remains in the hospital in unknown condition, Upper Southampton Chief of Police Ron MacPherson said.

The accident remains under investigation.

Friday, 10:42 p.m.: Friday evening as night fell, investigators milled around a damaged Lexus SUV that sat against the curb at the entrance to the Huntingbrook development off Street Road in Upper Southampton, just feet away a motorcyclist lay dead a short distance from his blue sport bike.

The accident that caused the rider's untimely death remains under investigation by police, Chief Glenn McKenney said.

The wreck occurred shortly after 7 p.m. at Street Road and Heppe Drive, according to sources. The fatality appears to have connections to the area.

Residents of the nearby Trowbridge development told Patch, neighbors who heard the crash described it a sounding like a "gunshot." Passerby Tim Mirsch, of Bensalem, described the motorcycle as "demolished."

The driver of the Lexus, which was heavily damaged on the right side, was taken from the scene in an ambulance, a resident of McNelis Drive said.

Neighbors, many of whom gathered after hearing sirens, stood in the waning sunlight discussing the "dangerous" entrance to their neighborhood of town homes and their many near-misses.

Just yards away, police from multiple nearby departments, including several Bensalem officers and that community's director of public safety, arrived at the scene as accident investigation was beginning.

Firefighters responded to the scene to provide lighting and a ladder truck so police could take aerial photographs for their investigation.

Thes stories about biker accident, annd PA. bike riders, are beyond sad, they are beyond tragic. But I wish to remind PA. driver's that there are hunderds of animals,(before some people get the idea, that I am compairing the lives of humans to animals, I am Not). I am making a statement about number of animals killed in and around Chambersburg, Franklin County. My daughter is trying to set up volunteers to go around and clean up bodies of dead animals on the Interstates and highways , in and around, Franklin County.
