Ledyard -- A Mystic man was killed Sunday afternoon when he lost control of his motorcycle on the Route 2 off ramp to Route 214 and struck a concrete barrier.

Cass Wolfenbarger III, 57, of 22 Irving St., was pronounced dead at the William W. Backus Hospital where he had been brought after the 1:40 p.m. crash.

Ledyard police said their preliminary investigation found Wolfenbarger was driving his 2011 Harley Davidson east on the Route 2 off ramp heading toward the Route 214 intersection when he lost control of his motorcycle negotiating a curve and struck the cement jersey barrier.

Two police officers performed CPR on Wolfenbarger until medical personnel arrived. The Southeastern Connecticut Regional Traffic Unit also responded to the scene to assist in investigating the accident due to its severity.

Ledyard police is asking for anyone who may have observed the events leading up to the crash to call them at (860) 464-6400 and speak with Sgt. Eric Bushor or Officer Ben Burbank. Calls can be kept confidential.
