DRAPER, Utah — An 18-year-old motorcyclist died early Tuesday morning after crashing in Draper.

Draper police say around midnight, the female motorcyclist was spotted driving recklessly and officers from several agencies tried stopping the motorcyclist.

Officers followed the motorcycle through the Bluffdale and Lehi areas but terminated the pursuit.

Then around 1:30 a.m. a Draper officer, who was on a separate call, found the crashed motorcycle in the area of 14000 South Minuteman Drive and the rider was deceased.

Investigators say it appears the motorcycle was speeding and crashed while the rider navigated a turn in the road.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

Police later identified the victim as Ciarra Lynn Kuhr.
