A Kansas man is dead after his motorcycle collides with a pick–up truck on highway 50 Saturday. The accident happened Saturday afternoon near Little Blue Canyon in Gunnison County, Colorado. State Patrol investigators say 50–year–old Michael Russell hit the truck when he lost control of his bike while negotiating a curve. Russell's passenger Cathleen Hoffman also from Kansas was transported to St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction. Her condition was not known Sunday. State Patrol adds that at this time alcohol, drugs, or speed do not appear to be factors in the crash.
