Montrose man dies in Delta County motorcycle wreck

A 50-year-old Montrose man died Sunday in a motorcycle accident on Colorado Highway 92 in Delta County, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

The crash happened just after noon at mile marker 45, 15 miles from Crawford, Trooper Nate Reid said.

The man, whose name wasn’t immediately released, pending notification of family, was riding a 2007 black Kawasaki with a group of motorcyclists that had pulled over at a turnout. The man came around a blind curve and tried to stop but lost control and was thrown from the motorcycle, Reid said.

Authorities called for a helicopter from St. Mary’s Hospital, but the man, who wasn’t wearing a helmet, died at the scene before the helicopter arrived, Reid said.
