The motorcycle collided with the turning vehicle. Hayes was transported to the Albany Medical Center before succumbing to his injuries.
The driver cooperated with police investigations, and there are currently no charges or citations against them. The occupants sustained minor injuries from airbag deployment. Police say that speed and unsafe passing appear to be factors in the crash.
