A motorcycle accident in Tulsa has left one man dead on Saturday afternoon. Police say that the accident occurred around 5:30 pm this today at the Whitewater Park at Keystone Lake. That is where 54 year old Edward Landes was driving a 2005 Yamaha motorcycle. At that point, Landes became involved in an accident. Authorities report that Landes sustained “massive injuries” in the accident. Ultimately, he did pass away from the injuries. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol investigated the accident. OHP remains on scene this evening. They are working to determine that cause of the accident. No further details are immediately available and we will update you as new information comes to light.
Perhaps the greatest fear of motorcycle riders is being involved in an accident. Motorcycle riders must be aware and vigilant at all times as they are exposed to great danger when riding. In this instance, it is unclear what caused Edward Landes to wreck his motorcycle. However, the accident serves as a sad reminder that motorcycles can turn deadly on a moment’s notice. Certainly our thoughts and condolences go out to the family of Edward Landes as they cope with the lost of a loved one.
