BEATRICE – A motorcyclist has died in an accident in northeast Kansas. The Kansas Highway Patrol reports the accident happened early Monday night, about eleven miles south of Clay Center.
60-year-old Gary Riekeman of Abilene, Kansas was riding a 2008 Harley Davidson south on Kansas Highway 15, when he lost control of the motorcycle. The bike left the highway, going into the west ditch and ejecting the rider.
The K-H-P says Riekeman was not wearing a helmet.
