A 58-year-old Parrott man was killed Wednesday evening when he lost control of his motorcycle and ran off Highland Road.

Capt. Jeff Saunders with Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office said George E. Page Jr. lost control of the 2011 Harley Davidson motorcycle in a curve, a tenth mile east of Ruebush Road. The bike ran off the road, striking a Verizon utility box and fire hydrant. Page, who was wearing a helmet, died at the scene.

Sgt. Danny Johnson with the sheriff’s office is continuing to investigate the wreck. Saunders said speed was a factor in the 5:59 p.m. crash.

REMSI and Twin Community Fire Department also responded to the scene.
