A Glassport man died Saturday evening when his motorcycle crashed in West Mifflin.

Frank Wehrer, 40, died of blunt-force trauma to the head sustained in the wreck, the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said. His death has been ruled an accident.

A spokeswoman for Allegheny County Police said the wreck occurred near the intersection of Duquesne and Center avenues just before 7 p.m. The accident is under investigation and police are still working to determine what caused Wehrer to lose control of the motorcycle.

Paramedics transported Wehrer to UPMC McKeesport hospital, where he was pronounced dead just after 7:30 p.m., officials said. He was not wearing a helmet, police said.
