A 45-year-old Mercer County man died when Sheriff's deputies say he crashed his motorcycle on Highway 152 in Mercer County.
Just before 7:00 pm, a Mercer County Sheriff's deputy says the motorcycle came around a curve and went into the ditch line in the opposite lane. The driver tried to correct the motorcycle, but he hit a tree stump and was thrown from the motorcycle. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
Deputies say speed was a factor, and the motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet. The coroner is still trying to notify all next of kin before releasing a name.
