Police say they believe a Schuylkill Haven man was driving under the influence of drugs at the time of his fatal motorcycle crash earlier this month.
Back on July 8, at about 7:30 a.m., police were dispatched to a report of a crash along W. Adamsdale Rd. in North Manheim Twp.
At that time, police said 66-year-old Glenn Guldin, of Schuylkill Haven, was trying to negotiate a curve in Adamsdale Rd. but his motorcycle crossed the center of the road. Guldin and his bike hit a guide wire on the side of the road, which ejected the driver off the bike. The motorcycle slide about 4 feet and Guldin was separated from the vehicle.
Both Guldin and the motorcycle were eventually discovered in a wooded area near the crash site. Police say they were found “by citizens multiple hours” after the initial crash report.
The crash closed W. Adamsdale Rd. for several hours that morning.
During the course of their investigation of the crash, in new information from State Police in Schuylkill Haven released early Saturday morning, drugs were found on Guldin and authorities suspect he was under the influence at the time of the crash.
The police investigation into this crash continues, they say.
