BELCHERTOWN — A 37-year-old Belchertown man was killed when the motorcycle he was riding crashed into a guardrail on Amherst Road (Route 9) Wednesday night, according to police.

Jason Zolendziewski was riding one of three motorcycles traveling east together on Amherst Road shortly after 8 p.m. when he lost control of the motorcycle and crashed into a guardrail, police said.
