“Once on the scene, it was determined that the accident was a single-vehicle accident involving a motorcycle,” Capt. David Clackley said. “The driver was the only rider and sustained fatal injuries and passed away on the scene.”

The vehicle failed to make the turn, and speed is thought to be a factor.
