ST. GEORGE — A man was injured in a motorcycle crash Saturday night and later died at the hospital.

A man was leaving the area when he lost control of the bike and struck a retaining wall in the 700 block of St. James Lane, according to St. George police officer Tiffany Mitchell. The man was thrown from his seat and hit his head while not wearing a helmet.

He was taken to a hospital, but later died from his injuries.

According to St. George News, responding officers initially thought the bike was newly purchased, but later clarified the man had owned it for several years.

A GoFundMe* identifies the rider as 48-year-old Blaine Moore and said the accident happened shortly after a round at Beaverwood Disc Golf Course.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to Blaine's friends and family. At times like these we all want to know how we can help. The fact is, we can help with our thoughts and prayers," the fundraiser states.

* does not assure that the money deposited to the account will be applied for the benefit of the persons named as beneficiaries. If you are considering a deposit to the account, you should consult your own advisers and otherwise proceed at your own risk.

Correction: An earlier version indicated the motorcycle was purchased shortly before the accident, but police and family said that is not the case.
