A Pueblo man was killed in a motorcycle crash near Avondale Sunday evening. Colorado State Patrol says Michael Earhart, 40, was riding too fast and failed to negotiate a right-hand turn along the eastbound Highway 50 Business Loop about two miles west of Avondale. His motorcycle went off the roadway and Earhart was thrown clear. Earhart died on-scene. He was not wearing a helmet. The motorcycle was the only vehicle involved in the crash. Drugs and alcohol are not suspected as factors leading to the crash.
