A Somerset man has died in a motorcycle crash after just recently becoming a father.

According to Gregg Miliote of the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office, 24-year-old Brian Dunne lost control of his motorcycle and left the roadway sometime between 11:00 p.m. Monday and 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
