A motorcyclist died in Yellowstone National Park on Tuesday afternoon after a sport utility vehicle crossed into the wrong lane while traveling on the stretch of road between Gibbon Falls and Madison Junction.

The crash occurred at 5 p.m., taking the life of Wyoming resident  52 year old James Michael Cody. Cody was the lead rider in a group of three motorcycles and did not have time to avoid the oncoming vehicle as it crested a hill.

All of the other  riders were able to lay down their bikes and escaped from the incident without life-threatening injury, although one rider was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital.

According to Yellowstone Park Spokesman Al Nash the incident is still under investigation, but preliminary findings indicate that the driver of the SUV may have “nodded off.”
