Motorcyclist killed on Lower Mountain Road

Niagara Gazette — CAMBRIA — A Town of Lockport man was killed in a motorcycle accident about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday on Lower Mountain Road.

The man, identified as Alan Flowers, 25, lost control of his motorcycle on a bend just west of Plank Road. The bike was found on the road shoulder and the man's body was found under a tree about 25 feet away. Flowers was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Niagara County Sheriff James R. Voutour.

Deputies interviewed motorists who attempted to revive the man, while the office received numerous 911 calls. First responders came from Cambria Volunteer Fire Co., New York State Police, Rural Metro Ambulance, Tri-Community Ambulance and the sheriff's office.

A homeowner in the area said that he heard a rattling noise around the time of the accident, but thought it was the sound of a trailer passing by, so he didn't check it out.

According to Voutour, the victim was traveling westbound on Lower Mountain Road when he apparently lost control of his motorcycle at the curve in the road, veered onto the north side of the road and struck two mail boxes. Flowers was ejected from the bike.

The Niagara County Sheriff's Office Accident Investigation Unit is continuing their investigation.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
