A motorcyclist died this afternoon after driving off an embankment and striking a tree in Elbe.

The Washington State Patrol identified the man as Michael P. Anikusko, 29, of Graham.

Anikusko was heading west on state Route 706 toward state Route 7 when he missed a curve and went off the road, the WSP reported. After going over an embankment, his 2008 Suzuki GSXR750 hit a tree and a rock.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Troopers are investigating what caused Anikusko to lose control.
