CASTLE VALLEY, Utah (AP) — The Utah Highway Patrol says a Colorado man is dead after a motorcycle crash in Castle Valley.
They say 56-year-old Albert Hughes of Grand Junction was riding his motorcycle along state Route 128 about 3:30 p.m. Saturday when it went off the right side of the road for unknown reasons.
Authorities say Hughes was talking to witnesses when he collapsed.
Witnesses began CPR and a medical helicopter was dispatched.
Highway Patrol officials say Hughes was unresponsive when medical personnel arrived and was pronounced dead.
They say Hughes was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, but he had a previous medical history that may have contributed to his death.
