Driver dies in motorcycle crash in southern Utah

Thursday September 22, 2022

On Thursday, Sept 22, 2022, at about 11:25 am, a Black Harley Davidson Motorcycle was traveling eastbound on SR 20 near MM 5. At this location, there is a large sweeping lefthand curve. The motorcycle appears to have been going too fast for the curve and drifted to the outside.  The Harley motorcycle went off the roadway to the right and struck a rock.  The motorcycle then started flipping end over end and the driver was thrown. The 68-year-old male driver was wearing a helmet and he also hit the rocks.  He died on scene from his injuries.

Land closures from place for about three and a half hours during the investigation.
