Source: To those who knew him, Charles Signaigo was a good man. He was killed Tuesday evening when a car struck him as he rode his bike on Route 9, crossing North Bowl Way near Cumberland 12 Cinemas. Rose Ero, who worked with Signaigo for 15 years at the North Margaret Street McDonald’s Restaurant in Plattsburgh, said the news of the accident has been difficult on his coworkers there. She described him as kind, hardworking and selfless. “He did a lot for the community,” the restaurant manager said. “For him to go out this way was very hard.” EJECTED FROM BIKE The accident occurred shortly before 5 p.m. Tuesday, as Signaigo rode south on Route 9. Judith A. Exford, 44, of Morrisonville, traveling northward on Route 9 in a 2006 Honda sedan, was making a left-hand turn onto North Bowl Lane, State Police said. She told investigators that, at the last second, she saw Signaigo on his bike but was unable to avoid him. The bicycle and car collided, ejecting Signaigo from the bike over the hood of Exford’s Honda. He struck his head on the pavement, police said, and was not wearing a helmet. Signaigo, 55, was pronounced dead by Clinton County Coroner David Donah; an autopsy was performed at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at CVPH Medical Center in Plattsburgh. The State Police Troop B Collision Reconstruction Unit had not yet concluded its investigation into the cause of the accident on Wednesday.
