A motorcycle crash claimed the life of one man late Sunday afternoon. The crash occurred just south of Ennis, Montana. The man is reported to not have been wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Barbara Armstrong was the first official to respond to the scene of the crash. She said the crash victim was a 47-year-old man who was not a resident of Montana. Trooper Armstrong said the crash happened just after 5 p.m.
Witnesses said the motorcyclist was traveling south along Highway 287 behind several other cars when it hit the back of a car that suddenly slowed down. The crash victim’s motorcycle then turned over and skidded across the highway. Since the motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet he died at the scene of the crash.
Montana Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of the crash, believing speed was the primary factor. They have not ruled out whether drugs or alcohol is to blame.
No one else was injured in the crash. The victim’s name has yet to be released to the public.
