ST. GEORGE — Police are investigating a motorcycle crash that killed a 54-year-old Washington City man.

Police said the crash happened Tuesday night, when a flatbed came off of a truck on River Road.

"The trailer came off the truck and went into oncoming traffic," St. George Police Sgt. James Van Fleet said Thursday. "A car was able to get out of the way, but a motorcyclist was not."

The motorcyclist, identified as David Livings, collided with the trailer. He was taken to Dixie Regional Medical Center and later flown to a Las Vegas hospital, where police said he died from his injuries.

The accident remains under investigation, Van Fleet said, and charges are pending.
