ITHACA, N.Y. —  An Ithaca man was killed early Thursday morning in a motorcycle crash in Covert.

The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to the fatal crash at 1:50 a.m. Thursday on Route 96 and Schier Road in Covert. Kevin P. Lockwood, 32, of Ithaca, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Lockwood was traveling north on Route 96 when deputies say he failed to negotiate a curve on his Harley Davidson and left the road, striking a road sign and some trees before coming to rest in the yard of a residence.

Deputies were assisted at the scene by Trumansburg Fire and Ambulance, Interlaken Fire and Ovid Fire Departments.

The investigation is ongoing, the sheriff’s office said.
