VEYO, Washington County — A single-vehicle motorcycle accident on Gunlock Road west of Veyo left one man dead Sunday afternoon.

Around 3:30 p.m., a man driving a motorcycle west on Gunlock toward Gunlock Reservoir crashed near a turn in the road known as "motorcycle rock." The motorcycle ended up in the yellow brush alongside the road.

Steve Haluska, fire chief of the Central Fire Department, told St. George News that as far as they know "he was going too fast."

"It happens often right here. It was either our second or third one this year. We're usually here a couple, three times every year. A lot of times they're not fatal, but it's just a bad area."
