A Gordon man died after a motorcycle crash from over the weekend. The Douglas County Sheriff's office has identified him as Jon Winjum, 62.


They said someone reported a motorcycle crash on County Trunk Highway Y near Jackacki Road on Saturday night. The reporting party had found the bike, but not the person riding it.

First-responders arrived and located a three-wheeled trike motorcycle about 300 feet off the pavement in waist-high brush.  They located Winjum about 50 feet away.

According to the sheriff's office, he had been northbound and failed to negotiate the curve near the Jackacki Rd and left the pavement.

The crash is under investigation by the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.
