Troopers at the Reading station gave this account:

Lawler was traveling eastbound on Deer Run Road when he overcompensated while rounding a right curve. He veered onto the eastbound shoulder and struck a boulder.

The bike went airborne. Lawler was thrown and landed on the westbound side of the road. The motorcycle tumbled end over end for a distance before coming to rest on the eastbound side of the road.
