"Snyder pulled into the motorcycle's path from Caggiano Drive," Fowler said. "Moore was wearing a helmet and was ejected from the motorcycle.".

Moore sustained multiple body trauma, Fowler stated. Snyder was not injured.

The accident remains under investigation by the Highway Patrol's M.A.I.T. unit.
