A Panama City, Fla., man was killed Wednesday night when he was thrown from his motorcycle

George M. Hogg, 34, was riding his Kawasaki motorcycle south on the road “at a high rate of speed” about 11:15 p.m., police spokesman Capt. Kevin Foltz said. As Hogg approached the curve near Third Street, he lost control of the motorcycle, Foltz said.

The motorcycle crossed Pontchartrain Drive and went over three curbs in the parking lot of the Capital One bank before Hogg was thrown off, Foltz said. The motorcycle came to rest in the parking lot of a vacant building nearby.

Hogg, who was wearing a helmet, was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead of massive head injuries, Foltz said.

Authorities will conduct toxicology tests to determine whether alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash.
