Hugoton motorcyclist dies from injures after crash

ELKHART, Kan. (AP) — Hospital officials say a motorcyclist who was critically injured after crashing his bike in southwest Kansas has died.

A Via Christi Hospital St. Francis spokeswoman said Monday that 36-year-old Bruno Olivas Jr. of Hugoton died over the weekend from injuries sustained in the Friday crash in Elkhart.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says Olivas drove too fast around a curve in the road and lost control before striking a brick retaining wall. He wasn’t wearing a helmet.
