A Bangor man was killed Saturday afternoon when his motorcycle collided with a pickup truck in Lower Mount Bethel Township, state police said.

Police said Nicholas P. Paone, 28, was riding his motorcycle westbound on Martins Creek Belvidere Highway when the truck, driven by a Bangor man, started making a left turn from Gravel Hill Road around 3:34 p.m.

The truck was in Paone’s travel lane as he drove through a right-hand curve. Paone tried to brake, but hit the driver’s side of the truck between the front tire and door, police said.

The pickup driver was not injured.

The crash is under investigation.
