PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — A 31-year-old man died after crashing his motorcycle Thursday evening in western Boca Raton, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

PBSO said Michael Osterling of Boca Raton was riding a 2016 Harley Davidson northbound at a high rate of speed on Lyons Road near Escondido Way at 5:52 p.m.

Investigators said Osterling failed to negotiate a curve in the road, causing him to lose control.

The motorcycle struck the curb and ejected Osterling, who struck a sign post in the median.
