A motorcyclist has died after a crash on CTH V, west of Ridgeland, early Friday morning, April 26.

The Dunn County Sheriff’s Office said the crash was reported at 12:41 a.m. on Friday. Dallas Ambulance and Dunn County sheriff’s deputies responded to the intersection of CTH V and 490th Street in the township of Sheridan.

The sheriff’s department named the driver as Richard J. Larson, 56, of Boyceville.

The subsequent investigation showed the motorcycle was eastbound on CTH V and failed to negotiate the curve, the DCSO said. The motorcycle entered the ditch and the lone operator was ejected. The operator was pronounced dead at the scene by the Dunn County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The crash remains under investigation by the DCSO and the Dunn County Medical Examiner’s Office as of April 26.
