A 58-year-old Minot man died Saturday night when he lost control of his motorcycle and skidded into the woods.

Richard Sprague died at the scene of the crash, which occurred about 8:45 p.m. Saturday, said Maine State Trooper Nathan Jamo.

Jamo said witnesses told him that Sprague, who was not wearing a helmet, had been passing cars on Center Minot Hill Road.
