A 53-year-old man died Monday morning in a Pulaski County motorcycle crash.

Daren Bell, of Richland, was driving a 1996 Harley Davidson at 5:55 a.m. on Highway BB, five miles west of Crocker, when he swerved to avoid hitting a deer in the road. The motorcycle skidded and struck the deer, ejecting Bell from the bike. He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The fatal crash was the second of the month and the 11th of the year for MSHP Troop I.
