MALAD — A Utah man died Sunday evening in a motorcycle crash south of Malad.

The crash happened around 8:40 p.m. at the intersection of Old Highway 191 and East 6000 South.

Mark Coppenger, 54, of Tremonton, was on a Harley Davidson when Idaho State Police say he drove off the right shoulder and overturned the motorcycle. He was not wearing a helmet and died at the scene, according to an ISP news release.

This was the second motorcycle fatality crash in Idaho Sunday.
