STILLWATER, OK – A 50-year-old motorcyclist died Tuesday morning from injuries sustained in a crash on Monday evening in Payne County, reports Fox 25.

Medics transported the motorcyclist, identified as Larry Mayes of Noble, to the hospital. He died the next morning.

It is unclear whether the driver of the pickup truck sustained injuries.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
