BECKLEY — A Ghent man died Saturday afternoon after losing control of his motorcycle and wrecking along Ragland Road in Beckley.

The Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office said Jerry Waylon Pack, 26, was traveling on his motorcycle when he lost control and ran off the road at the intersection of Ragland Road and Fernandez Drive at approximately 1:30 p.m. Investigators attributed his death to speed and the fact that Pack was not wearing a helmet.  

No other vehicles were involved in the accident.
