A 69-year-old Amherst man was taken by ambulance to Erie County Medical Center for treatment of a head injury he suffered when a driver struck his motorcycle at about 4 p.m. Friday in the 3800 block of Maple Road in Amherst.

Albert C. Hummer was wearing a helmet but still suffered a head injury when he was knocked off his cycle as Rosemond Johnson, also 69, of North Tonawanda, changed lanes heading east on Maple.

Johnson, who was not injured, was ticketed by Amherst police for making an unsafe lane change.
