GEARY COUNTY, Kan. (WIBW) -- The Geary County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a motorcycle accident that claimed the life of a 28-year-old man on Interstate 70.

Around 3 AM Friday, August 24, 2012, deputies responded to I-70 mile post 310 west bound off-ramp to the rest area approximately 13 miles east of Junction City for a possible injury accident.

Dispatch stated that there was a man lying on the ground not moving next to a motorcycle.

Officers arrived and found Bradey Weaver, of Toledo, Ohio, suffering from serious head injuries.

Weaver was rushed to the emergency room at Geary Community Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Officials say the crash took place along the interstate and deputies are investigating the cause of the fatal accident.

"Due to the very heavy rainfall during this time, it is not yet clear if this is a single vehicle accident or if there is possibly another vehicle involved. The investigation continues, an autopsy is being preformed, we are searching the area where this occurred for any further clues as to what took place," Major Tony Wolf with the Geary County Sheriff's Department said in a press release Friday.

Weaver was on a road trip to Las Vegas from Ohio, Wolf said.
