FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — A California man is dead after a motorcycle accident in northern Arizona.
Coconino County Sheriff's officials say 60-year-old Glenn Gelman, of Yorba Linda, was declared dead at the scene of Friday morning's crash east of the Flagstaff city limits.
Investigators say Gelman was riding with a large group of other motorcycle enthusiasts participating in a cross-country tour from Mexico to Canada.
Witnesses say Gelman was going about 50 mph and lost control of his motorcycle, which flipped end-over-end at least once.
Authorities are considering the possibility that Gelman suffered a medical emergency.
Prior to the accident, the tour group stopped in Payson and Gelman reportedly told another participant that he wasn't feeling well and felt tired and fatigued.
The Sheriff's Office and county Medical Examiner's Office are investigating the death.
