Middleburgh man dies in motorcycle accident

Failed to negotiate a turn on County Highway 46 in Milford

MILFORD — Speed was a factor in a weekend motorcycle accident that took the life of a 49-year-old Schoharie County man, authorities said today.

Shawn M. Cooper, of Woods Road, Middleburgh, died at Bassett Medical Center in Cooperstown shortly after he failed to negotiate a turn on County Highway 46 in Milford. His bike veered into a ditch and overturned.

Cooper, who had been ejected from his motorcycle, was treated at the scene by emergency units from the Milford Fire Department and sheriff's deputies.

Cooper died from apparent internal injuries sustained in the crash.

The Sheriff's office accident investigation team is continuing to investigate the incident, which was reported at 2:59 p.m. on Saturday.
