CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — West Virginia State Police say a Somerset man has died from injuries he suffered when his motorcycle hit the rear of a car on Route 28 in Short Gap.

The Times-News of Cumberland reports the man was identified as 68-year-old Dale Lyzbicki, of Somerset. Police say he was thrown off the motorcycle in Monday’s traffic accident and was taken to a Maryland hospital, where he died Tuesday afternoon.

(Publisher’s note:  We are saddened to report the death of Pastor Dale Lyzbicki who had been the pastor of an Unincorporated Baptist church in Somerset, PA for many years until his recent retirement.  He died on Tuesday Mar. 8 at the scene of the accident, even though he was taken to the hospital and spent the night on a respirator.  He had massive facial and brain injuries in spite of being helmeted.  The accident took place on a two lane highway in WVA near Cumberland, MD when he drove his cycle into an SUV which was stopped to make a left turn.  According to his wife Billie, who was riding on the back of the cycle, she was thrown into the air and landed in the next lane, and even though she had some bruising, she had no serious injuries and was released from the hospital that afternoon.  Apparently Bro. Dale was distracted and never saw the SUV.

Police say the driver of the car, Kady Boudreaux, 20, of La Plata, W.Va., and two passengers were taken to the hospital for evaluation.

A private service was held for the pastor for the immediate family which included his wife, daughter, and son along with four grandchildren.
