Shawnee Police continue to investigate after a passerby found a motorcycle laying on Clare Road and the rider on the ground nearby.

Officers were dispatched to the 4800 block of Clare Road at 10:11 p.m. Friday. The 4800 block of Clare Road is west of Kansas Highway 7 and just south of a railroad crossing.

Police found the rider to be unconscious but breathing, when they arrived at the scene. The man was transported to Overland Park Regional Medical Center, in critical condition, by Johnson County Med-Act.

Late Saturday evening Police confirmed that he succumbed to his injuries at the hospital.

Witnesses tell Operation 100 News that the motorcyclist was, "probably in his early to mid-30's."

In a statement released late Saturday evening, Sergeant Joe Mazzei identified the victim as Richard D. Shelby. Sgt Mazzei says they believe Mr. Shelby was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

The Shawnee Police Department's Traffic Safety Unit continues to investigate the accident.
