LANESBOROUGH -- A Winsted, Conn., man who was hospitalized after crashing his motorcycle on the Mount Greylock Reservation over the weekend was apparently riding too fast, according to state police.

On Sunday, troopers from the Cheshire barracks said they plan to charge Jonathan Nash with speeding and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.

Around 8:45 a.m. Saturday, Nash, 29, was riding with other motorcyclists on Rockwell Road when he allegedly sped off ahead of the pack, according to state police. He suddenly lost control of his Ducati motorcycle, causing him to be tossed 100 feet.

Nash, suffering from shoulder pain and a possible concussion, was flown to Albany Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition.
