A Hamburg man died early this morning after he was ejected from his motorcycle at the intersection of Big Tree Road and South Park Avenue, according to Hamburg police.

The man, 42, was found in the roundabout shortly after 2 a.m. and taken to Mercy Hospital, where he later died, authorities said.

Police did not release the man’s name and said they are still investigating the accident.

The accident occurred at the same roundabout where a 54-year-old Blasdell man died in October 2011 when his car crashed into boulders in the middle of the roundabout. After the death of Kenneth D. Braun, the boulders were replaced by fiberglass “rocks” designed to buckle when hit by a vehicle.
