LOGAN CANYON, Cache County — A 31-year-old Bountiful man was killed Friday when he crashed his motorcycle.

Craig Allen was riding his motorcycle west about 1:30 p.m. Friday when he crashed near milepost 468. He drove off the roadway, up an incline and was thrown from the motorcycle, the Utah Highway Patrol reported.

Allen was not wearing a helmet and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sometime after the accident, the motorcycle caught fire. A Division of Wildlife Resources officer was driving east through the canyon and noticed the flames. The officer called for help and attempted first aid on Allen.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
