PASCO, WA - A man is dead after losing control of his motorcycle.

Pasco Police say the man was driving at a high speed Wednesday evening down Finnhorse Lane in the Chapel Hill area. When officers responded, the man was unconscious. Paramedics performed CPR, but they pronounced him dead at the scene.

"The motorcyclist was traveling at a high rate of speed. We're investigating that. It's simply what witnesses have told us right now. If that is the case simply, drivers on motorcycles certainly need to slow down and be careful," said Captain Ken Roske from the Pasco Police Department.
