EB HWY 30 at N. Thompson Dr.


A 21-year-old man died following a motorcycle crash on the city's east side.

Officers were dispatched to eastbound Highway 30 near N. Thompson Dr. around 9:50 p.m.

An off-duty EMS worker stopped and began life-saving measures until officers and other first responders arrived on scene.

The man was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. He passed away early Wednesday morning from those injuries.

Speed appears to be a factor in this case. It is unclear at this time if the man was wearing a helmet.

Eastbound Highway 30 was temporarily closed as officers tended to the victim and investigated the crash.
