Cicero accident kills motorcyclist

Onondaga County Sheriff Kevin E. Walsh reports that deputies are investigating a motorcycle accident that claimed the life of a Cicero man.

At approximately 11:30 p.m., sheriff's deputies responded to East Taft Road, just west of Karker Road, to investigate a fatal motorcycle accident. Deputies report that Danny G. Facto, 29, of 7850 Areopagitica Ave., was traveling east on East Taft Road when he apparently lost control of his 2006 Harley Davidson motorcycle. Facto drove off to the north side of the road and was separated from his motorcycle.

Facto, who was wearing a novelty style helmet, sustained a massive head injury and was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

Members of the Sheriff's Accident Investigation Team were called to conduct a complete investigation.

Deputies report that rain was not an issue at the time of the accident and that there are no indications that another vehicle was involved. Investigators will await for results of an autopsy to determine whether alcohol was a factor.
