Man dies in Marshall Co. motorcycle crash

The Marshall County Sheriff's Office reports one man is dead after a motorcycle crash on Friday, September 2.

According to deputies, Donald E. Denton, 50, of Kanakee, Ill. was traveling southwest on Moors Camp Highway about four miles north of U.S. Highway 68 when he failed to negotiate a left-hand curve in the road and drove off the right shoulder.

Deputies say Denton then went down an embankment and was thrown off the 2011 Harley Davidson motorcycle. He died at the scene from injuries sustained in the accident.

The sheriff's department says Denton was not wearing a helmet and no other vehicles were involved.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation by Marshall County Deputy Sheriff Nathan Maxlow.
