Overland Park Police are investigating the city's first fatal traffic accident of 2014.

Police were called to an address in the 15300 block of Quivira Road around 3 a.m. Tuesday on reports of a motorcycle crashed into a retaining wall.

No one is believed to have witnessed the accident. A resident in the area found a motorcycle crashed in a driveway and the rider lying in the grass on the other side of a retaining wall.

Johnson County Med-Act arrived on scene a short time later and pronounced the man dead.

Overland Park Police have identified the rider as R. "Brock" Rodgers, 24, of Overland Park. Police say he was wearing a helmet.

Officer Gary Mason tells Operation 100 that the motorcycle is a Triumph Speed Triple.

The Overland Park Police Traffic Safety Unit believes the speed was a factor in the crash and they continue to investigate exactly what happened.
