Gibson Brooks of Ronan, 19, died as a result of injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash on Sloan Road late Thursday night, July 20.

According to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, alcohol is suspected as a factor in the crash that was called in to dispatch around 11 p.m.

A 19-year-old female passenger was hospitalized and neither person was wearing a helmet, Lake County Undersheriff Ben Woods said. 

Montana Highway Patrol Sgt. Chan Barry said the motorcycle was on Sloan Road about 1.5 miles south of Round Butte Road when it failed to negotiate a left curve. The motorcycle went straight and crashed, he said.
