A Searcy man died Wednesday night when his motorcycle ran off the road and hit a tree in White County, authorities said.

Jerry A. Sarrels Jr., 44, was riding a 2006 Harley Davidson motorcycle east on Arkansas 310 in Letona when he lost control in a curve shortly before 11:30 p.m., according to an Arkansas State Police report.

The motorcycle then ran off the highway and into a tree. Sarrels died from unspecified injuries.

Conditions at the time of the single-vehicle crash were described as clear and dry.

The death was the 182nd in a traffic crash so far this year and the third reported Wednesday, according to preliminary figures.

As a biker myself, I'm always saddened when something like this happens. Condolences to Mr. Sarrels' family and friends.
To my fellow bikers, ATGATT (all the gear all the time)

I worry when I see bikers wearing shorts, tank tops, tennis shoes and NO helmet. One wrong move and there will be a catastrophe.

It's amazing to me that it is against the law to not wear a seat belt while riding in a vehicle, and police are quick to ticket, but it's not against the law to not wear a helmet. Makes no sense whatsoever! In addition, school buses do not have seat belts yet nothing is done about it.
