A 67-year-old Wyoming motorcyclist is dead after colliding with a full-size SUV in Rawlins.

The crash happened around 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 9 at the intersection of W. Spruce Street and 3rd Street.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says the driver of the SUV didn't see Leo Montoya approaching on his motorcycle and turned in front of him.

Montoya, who was not wearing a helmet, collided with the SUV and died from his injuries.

Eight motorcyclists have died on Wyoming highways so far this summer, five of which were not wearing helmets​.
