Posted: Updated:

An Amarillo man is dead after he crashed his motorcycle around 8:40 Friday night while not wearing his helmet.

Police say 39-year-old Jeremy Sanders was riding his Harley Davidson in the 1900 block of N. Forest where it curves from northbound to southbound. Sanders somehow lost control of his bike and crashed into a tree. He was taken a hospital, but later died as a result of his injuries.

Again, Sanders was not wearing his helmet when he wrecked. Speed has been determined as a factor in this crash, but the accident is still being investigated by the Amarillo Police Department.
