WEST JORDAN, Utah (AP) -- A man trying to do stunts on his motorcycle was killed this week.

The incident happened on Tuesday in West Jordan.

Police say 20-year-old Ty Griffiths was in the parking lot of an apartment complex when he tried to do a wheelie. However, officers say he instead lost control of his motorcycle, went flying through a window of one of the apartments and was thrown into the brick building.

Authorities say Griffiths later died from severe head trauma.
