(YELLOWSTONE NAT'L PARK)- Rangers are still investigating, but say it may have been a drowsy driver that caused the crash that killed a Wyoming motorcycle rider this week.
52-year old James Michael Cody of Wright, Wyoming died when his bike slammed head-on into an SUV between Madison Junction and the Gibbon Falls overlook.
Rangers say the SUV headed south crossed the centerline on the crest of a hill and into the path of three oncoming motorcycles.
Cody, who was in the lead, had no time to react and was struck and killed instantly.
The ranger say the other riders, who were traveling behind Cody, were able to lay their motorcycles down on their side and avoid colliding with the SUV. One solo rider on one of the other bikes was transported to the hospital by ambulance with non-life threatening injuries. The two people on the other motorcycle were treated at the scene for minor injuries.
