A 44-year-old man died last night after he lost control of his motorcycle and was thrown into a light pole. The accident happened around 8:10 p.m. when Reginald Futch lost control of his 2004 Harley Davidson motorcycle while traveling south on Marguerite Parkway near the intersection of Via Florecer. The bike hit the curb of the center median and Futch was thrown from the motorcycle and into a light pole. Witnesses said he had been traveling at high rate of speed. Both directions of Marguerite were closed down while the collision was investigated.
