Yellowstone County Sheriff's Lt. Bill Jones, the county coroner, identified a man who died Saturday in Billings after the motorcycle he was riding crashed into a sport utility vehicle as 71-year-old Larry W. O'Connell, of Victor.
O'Connell was not wearing a helmet during the crash and died of blunt force trauma to the head, Jones said.
Billings police officials said O'Connell and a woman were riding the motorcycle northbound on 13th Street West when it collided with a GMC SUV as it entered the intersection from Avenue D.
O'Connell was thrown from the motorcycle and pronounced dead at the scene. The woman was taken to a Billings hospital with non-life-threatening injuries while the driver of the GMC was not injured.
