Greenwood Man Dies After Motorcycle Crashes Into Tree

A police report says the man was not wearing a helmet.

JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. -- A Greenwood man died early Sunday morning after his motorcycle crashed into a tree. 

Kevin Starnes, 21, was found lying next to his motorcycle near the intersection of 500 East and 300 north in the Needham area of Johnson County.

Starnes was given CPR at the scene but did not survive. A police report says he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

The Johnson County Sheriff's Office believes Starnes was headed northbound on 500 East when he crossed over 300 North and hit a tree next to the roadway. Extremely foggy conditions may have contributed to the crash.

Investigators are still working to determine exactly what caused the crash.
