Motorcyclist killed in West Jordan crash
WEST JORDAN, Utah — A 64-year-old man has died after crashing his motorcycle in West Jordan.
The incident happened in the area of 7000 South and 1300 West around 9 p.m. Friday.
Officer Jennifer Worthen with the West Jordan Police Department said two motorcyclists were traveling westbound on 7000 South, possibly at a high-rate of speed, when one of them appears to have hit a curb.
Witnesses told police they saw the motorcyclist on the ground, while the other motorcyclist “went down another street and then took off and left his motorcycle there and he just ran off,” said Worthen.
The 64-year-old motorcyclist was transported to Intermountain Medical Center, where he died from his injuries.
Police are still trying to determine what led up to the crash, but they believe the motorcyclists may have been racing each other.
Worthen said the 64-year-old was not wearing a helmet.
His identity has not been released.
