IVINS — One man died Saturday evening after he was ejected from his motorcycle near mile marker 6 on Old Highway 91.
Shortly after 5 p.m. a man from Nevada in his 70s was traveling southwest on a 2008 Harley Davidson on Old Highway 91 with a group of other motorcycle riders. As he began to veer left around a curve the motorcycle slid and the man was thrown from his vehicle, said Washington County Sheriff’s Sgt. Dave Crouse who was the first responder on scene.
“It didn’t appear to have been caused from alcohol or any other contributing factor,” Crouse said.
The man suffered severe head trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene, Crouse said. He was wearing a helmet and the cause of the accident is still under investigation.
Family members have been notified, but the man’s name has not yet been released.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by responders on scene and may not contain the full scope of findings.
