MOTORCYCLE CRASH
BOZEMAN, Mont. -

A 50-year-old Bozeman man died in a weekend motorcycle crash on Norris Road, west of Bozeman.

The Montana Highway Patrol says the man was traveling with three other riders Sunday afternoon when he crossed over the center line on a tight curve and struck an oncoming van.

The occupants of the van were not injured.

Madison County Sheriff Dave Schenk said Dewitt Latimer died at the scene of the crash. He was hired last June as Montana State University's chief information officer to oversee the university's computer systems.

The patrol says Latimer was wearing his helmet, but was an inexperienced rider and didn't know Norris Road very well.
