LIM­ER­ICK >> A man has died of his in­juries af­ter his mo­tor­cy­cle crashed into a util­ity pole Sept. 30.

The driver, iden­ti­fied by po­lice as Ja­cob Focht, 21, of Oley, was pro­nounced dead Oct. 1 in Pottstown Hospi­tal.

Focht had been wear­ing a hel­met at the time of the crash, po­lice said.

Po­lice said of­fi­cers ar­rived at the 400 block of Swamp Pike at around 10:06 p.m. Sept. 30 to find a 2006 Kawasaki mo­tor­cy­cle had crashed into a util­ity pole.

Au­thor­i­ties said in a re­port Oct. 2 the pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion found that Focht was trav­el­ing south­bound on Swamp Pike when he at­tempted to nav­i­gate a curve in the road. The mo­tor­cy­cle then left the road and struck the util­ity pole.

Po­lice were as­sisted on scene by New Hanover Town­ship Po­lice, Trappe Am­bu­lance and Lim­er­ick Town­ship Fire De­part­ments.
