An Andrews man died after an early morning motorcycle crash in Howard County on Monday.

According to the Department of Public Safety spokesman in Midland, 51-year-old Lester Davis of Andrews was traveling eastbound on Highway 176 just north of Interstate 20 this morning when he failed to negotiate a curve and rolled his 1999 Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

DPS responded to the accident at 12:35 a.m. Monday and Davis was pronounced dead at the scene just after 1 a.m. Davis was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, DPS said.

The posted speed limit for the area was 40 miles per hour, but it was not known Monday evening whether speed was a factor in the accident.
