A Whitefield man was killed in a motorcycle accident early Friday in Augusta, police said.

Augusta Police found Bryn Goodman, 33, about 12:50 a.m. Friday, unresponsive on a sidewalk near a Harley-Davidson motorcycle in the area of 78 South Belfast Ave. Rescue personnel pronounced Goodman dead at the scene.

Augusta police Lt. Chris Read said an initial investigation revealed that Goodman was not wearing a helmet. Read said Maine State Police are reconstructing the accident, though Read said it appears that Goodman ran off the road.

Goodman pleaded guilty in 1997 to shooting his 13-year-old sister, Ciji, in the head fatally when he was 14. He admitted before sentencing that he and his sister had argued after he woke her up for school one morning. Goodman said he kicked open the door of the family’s gun cabinet in their mobile home and removed a 12-gauge shotgun.

He was sentenced to the Maine Youth Center until he turned 21, the maximum sentence allowed under juvenile law.
