The Highway Patrol’s report stated that the motorcycle was westbound on an ATV trail. The driver stated he was in fourth gear when the rear of the vehicle moved to the side due to a rut in the trail. The driver lost control, causing the vehicle to strike the ground. The driver impacted a tree as the vehicle went to the ground. A helmet was in use by the driver. The condition of the driver was apparently normal and the cause of the collision is attirbuted to unsafe speed for the type of roadway, which was a dirt trail.
