Brandon Michael Wilson, 41, from Skull Valley, was killed Friday, Nov. 25, when the motorcycle he was riding crashed.
According to Yavapai County Sheriff's Department, shortly after noon, a 2006 Harley Davidson motorcycle, traveling west on Iron Springs Road, attempted to pass three vehicles near Doce Pit Road just outside of Prescott.
The motorcycle struck a 2016 Dodge one ton pickup, which was making a left turn onto Doce Pit Road.
Wilson was thrown from the bike. He was not wearing a helmet.
Passing motorists rendered aid, but lack of cell phone service delayed emergency help as one of the motorists had to drive to an area with service.
Medical personnel arrived and told deputies Wilson died at the scene.
The driver of the pickup, a 67-year-old Prescott Valley man, was cooperative and exhibited no signs of impairment, said Dwight D'Evelyn, YCSO spokesman.
The crash remains under investigation and Wilson’s body was released to the Medical Examiner pending an autopsy to determine cause of death.
