Casper Man Dies in Motorcycle Crash

By Lindsay Joy,

Authorities say 33-year-old Jeremy Ware died after losing control of his motorcycle at the intersection of Pendell Boulevard and Riverview Avenue yesterday afternoon in Mills. 

According to police, witnesses say he was going at least twice the 20 m.p.h. posted speed limit.  Lt. Phil Crouch of the Mills Police Department said speed was a contributing factor to the accident, but it's unclear if drugs and alcohol were involved.  Toxicology reports will take a few weeks. 

No other vehicles were involved in the crash, which is the first fatal crash in Mills since 1998.
