A 45-year-old Arkansas man died Wednesday, four days after he was seriously injured in a motorcycle wreck in Northwest Arkansas, authorities said.

Steven M. Brandenburg of Bentonville was flown to Washington Regional Medical Center in Fayetteville after he was hurt in a crash Saturday morning on Arkansas 127 near Benton-Madison county line, according to an Arkansas State Police report. He died at the hospital late Wednesday morning.

According to the report, Brandenburg lost control of his Yamaha motorcycle while traveling east in a curve on the highway. The vehicle crossed the centerline and "overturned" in the westbound lane, the report said.

Conditions at the time were said to be clear and dry.

At least 80 people have died in traffic crashes in Arkansas so far this year, according to preliminary figures.

    Also I have a Suzuki GSX-S750Z 2018 Model with 3 levels of traction control and full ABS and safe as it can be. Can out manuever any car, and safer most cars. Was easier to learn this bike than my bigger Honda Shadow 1100. I am 59 years old and ride this bike everywhere. Don't talk about something unless you know what you are talking about! Must be a Democratic!!!
