Man dies in motorcycle crash

A motorcycle crash on Sunday afternoon killed a Homer man. Travis Coffey, 34, died of his injuries at the crash scene near Mile 19 East End Road. No services have been announced yet for Coffey.

According to an Alaska State Trooper press release, Coffey rode his 2000 Triumph motorcycle with a friend riding on a separate motorcycle. The pair headed east when Coffey lost control of his motorcycle and slid into the oncoming lane, hitting a 2010 GMC Sierra truck driven by a 20-year-old Delta Junction man.

Alaska State Troopers, Kachemak Emergency Services and a LifeMed helicopter ambulance responded.

Troopers from the Bureau of Highway Patrol did an investigation of the crash. Coffey wore a helmet and impairment from drugs or alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the crash, troopers said.

Next of kin were notified.
