SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -

A Montana man has died in a motorcycle crash in northeastern Utah.

The Utah Highway Patrol tells The Salt Lake Tribune that 49-year-old David P. Hellrigel of Bozeman died Saturday north of Vernal.

Police say Hellrigel was southbound on State Road 191 when he failed to negotiate a curve in an area known as "The Switchbacks."

Troopers say Hellrigel's motorcycle hit a guardrail and he was ejected.

Hellrigel, who was wearing a helmet, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
