A 2012 Harley-Davidson motorcycle was traveling south on I-81 when it failed to maneuver a curve, ran off the right side of the roadway, and collided with a guardrail.

The driver of the Harley-Davidson, Paul D. Wiley, 49, of Woodstock, died at the scene of the 7:15 p.m. crash due to his injuries. He was wearing a helmet.

Speed is considered a factor in the crash.
