A 55-year-old man is dead after crashing his motorcycle east of Cheyenne early Tuesday morning.

Laramie County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Capt. Linda Gesell says the man, whose name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin, was riding east on Dell Range Boulevard between Horizon Loop and U.S. 30 when he lost control of his bike shortly after midnight.

The man, who was found in the ditch about 10 feet in front of his bike, was not wearing a helmet and died at the scene.

Gesell says deputies didn't smell any alcohol at the scene, but a toxicology report has been requested.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol is assisting the Sheriff's Office with accident reconstruction.
