Craig Man Killed in Motorcycle Accident

BOWERSA Craig man was killed in a motorcycle accident on Highway 13 last night. State Troopers say 41-year old Jesse Bowers was riding into Craig, about 5 miles south of town, when he lost control of his bike and laid it down on the shoulder. Bowers was thrown from the bike off a steep embankment. Although he was wearing his helmet at the time of the crash, Bowers sustained fatal injuries in the fall. The crash was near where C-Dot crews are working on a bridge over the Yampa River. They were not working at the time. Troopers say the crash was likely the result of excessive speed.  Pictured:  Jesse Bowers
