A Bailey man died Tuesday afternoon after his motorcycle went out of control in Turkey Creek Canyon.
Larry Hackett, 62, was driving north on U.S. 285 about 3:30 p.m. when his motorcycle crashed at mile marker 247, about halfway between Parmalee Gulch and Colorado 8, said Morrison police Lt. Anthony Joiner.
“The driver lost control of his motorcycle, fishtailed for a little bit, hit the guardrail (and) was ejected from the motorcycle,” Joiner said.
Hackett’s motorcycle was the only vehicle involved.
Crews from Indian Hills Fire Rescue and the Morrison Police Department responded and administered CPR for about 20 minutes before Hackett was pronounced dead.
Northbound U.S. 285 was closed for about two hours after the crash, Joiner said.
Hackett worked as a delivery driver for Evergreen Newspapers.
