A teenager was killed Friday after crashing his motorcycle in a rural area of Pottawatomie County.

Sheriff Shane Jager says deputies responded to the area of Gerard Road, northwest of Belvue and found 17-year-old Abbott Mumaw, of Louisville, who was pronounced dead at the scene. An investigation determined Mumaw was westbound when he apparently lost control and crashed. The Sheriff says he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

Responding agencies included the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office, EMS and Consolidated Fire as well as Belvue Fire.

The accident remains under further investigation.
