Officers were called to a fatal crash at Unser and Montano NW after they said the motorcyclist struck a curb and was thrown from the bike Thursday afternoon.

Officer Simon Drobik, a spokesman for the Albuquerque Police Department, said motorcyclist Gregory Analla was traveling south on Unser just north of Montano NW when he struck the curb.

“Analla was wearing a helmet at the time,” Drobik wrote in an email. “He died from his injuries at the hospital.”

Drobik had initially said the crash was between a motorcycle and a vehicle but now he says it appears Analla lost control of the motorcycle and no other vehicles were involved.

The intersection was closed for a couple of hours but it has been re-opened.
