A 63-year-old man was pronounced dead Sunday morning in Lake County near Spring Creek Road and U.S. Highway 93 .

The 63-year-old was driving a motorcycle southbound along Highway 93 without a helmet behind a Dodge pickup truck driven by a 59-year-old from Pablo.

When the pickup attempted to make a left-hand turn onto Spring Creek Road, the motorcycle for unknown reasons continued into the front quarter panel of the pickup truck, according to the Montana Highway Patrol.

The 63-year-old was pronounced dead on scene. The driver of the pick up was not injured.

Alcohol and speed are suspected factors in this crash, according to Montana Highway Patrol.
