Man dies in Juneau motorcycle crash

Posted: Tuesday, May 21, 2002

JUNEAU (AP) -- Juneau carpenter David McRae, 37, died over the weekend after his motorcycle skidded off the Glacier Highway, Juneau police said.

Police were called about 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Capital City Fire and Rescue arrived on the scene to find two people performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on McRae.

He was transported to Bartlett Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

McRae was outbound on Glacier Highway when his motorcycle skidded off the road, struck a hillside and hit a large rock, according to police. The motorcycle went into the air and landed on the edge of the roadway. McRae was thrown off.

Police said speed may have been a factor in the accident, but alcohol likely was not involved. Toxicology results are pending, however, and the case remains under investigation.
