FORTINE - A Eureka man died after crashing his motorcycle on a United State Forest Service road near Fortine in Lincoln County.

The Montana Highway Patrol reported the accident happened around 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Montana Highway Patrol dispatchers said the 41-year-old man was driving his Kawasaki motorcycle along USFS Road #7021, when it veered off the left side of the road and into a ditch. Dispatchers said it appeared the man flew off his motorcycle and hit a tree.
