CUMBERLAND COUNTY, Pa.– Two people were injured after a motorcycle struck a pedestrian.

On September 29 around 5:30 p.m., police responded to a reported motorcycle crash involving a pedestrian along South Front Street near Poplar Street in Wormleysburg Borough.

Police say that an officer on the way to work came upon the crash, and determined that the pedestrian was in cardiac arrest before beginning CPR.
