MORGAN COUNTY, Utah, Aug. 8, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — A 67-year-old motorcyclist died Saturday after an accident on Interstate 84 east in Morgan County.

The accident happened at about 3:29 p.m.

“A group of motorcycles were traveling eastbound on I-84 near mile post 94,” a statement from the Utah Department of Public Safety says. “One of the riders of a black Harley Davidson failed to stay on the road as it curved to the right, and went off the road to the left into the cable barrier.

“The 67 year-old male rider was taken to a local hospital where he died following surgery.”

Mountain Green volunteer fire/EMS personnel on Engine 131 responded to the accident scene, as did Paramedic Rescue 5 from Ogden. A volunteer firefighter received a non-life-threatening injury and was also taken to McKay-Dee Hospital, treated and released.

The name of the victim has not yet been released. Lane closures were in place for about two hours during the accident investigation.
