(KMOV) – A motorcyclist was killed in a wreck in Granite City on Thursday, the second motorcycle-related fatality in the city in as many days.
According to police, 51-year-old George Petchulat was riding near the intersection of Oregon Ave. and Benton St. around 2:45 a.m. when he lost control and struck a curb.
Petchulat was transported to SLU Hospital, where he was pronounced dead less than an hour later.
Police say they do not believe other vehicles were involved.
The fatal wreck came just a day after another motorcyclist died in a crash involving a Budweiser truck near the intersection of Missouri and Konzen.
