A 57-year-old motorcycle rider from Lehigh Township died after a crash Thursday afternoon in the 100 block of Riverview Drive in the township, police report.

Two other people suffered injuries in a head-on wreck about three hours earlier and about a mile away on Riverview just north of Washington Drive, township police said.

John Czuba, of the Danielsville section of the township, was riding a blue Harley-Davidson just before 3:30 p.m. when it began to swerve, left the road and struck an embankment, police said from witness accounts. Czuba was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital-Muhlenberg in Bethlehem where he was pronounced dead, police said.

The Lehigh County Coroner’s Office stated it is is planning to do an autopsy Saturday to determine a cause and manner of Czuba’s death.

At 12:22 p.m., police were dispatched to Riverview near Washington for a head-on crash involving a black Ford F-150 pickup driven by a 22-year-old Catasauqua resident and a Toyota Sienna minivan driven by a 37-year-old North Whitehall Township resident, police said. The pickup truck driver was thrown from the vehicle as it went off the road, up an embankment and flipped, police said. Photos of the crash match police accounts. The other driver had to be extricated, police said.

Only one person was in each vehicle, police said.

The pickup driver was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital-Muhlenberg for treatment of “several undisclosed injuries” and the minivan driver was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital in Salisbury Township for injuries that were described the same way, a news release from Chief Scott Fogel said.

“Preliminary investigation indicated that alcohol may have contributed to the crash,” police said of the two-vehicle wreck.

Both crashes remain under investigation, police said.

Riverview Drive, which is Route 145, was closed for about five hours, police said.

The police department was assisted by the township fire department and fire police, firefighters from Walnutport and EMS personnel from Northampton Regional and NOVA, the news release said. Police from Walnutport and Moore Township helped cover calls in Lehigh Township during the initial investigation.
