A 22-year-old Herman, Neb., man died after his motorcycle crashed into a utility pole in Elmwood Park in Omaha early Wednesday.
Fredrick Getzschman was traveling west on Leavenworth Street on a 2008 Suzuki, Omaha police said. As he entered the park on Elmwood Park Drive, police said, he failed to negotiate a curve to the right. The motorcycle veered off the road and struck the utility pole.
Getzschman was taken in extremely critical condition to Nebraska Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Police said the accident remains under investigation.
An autopsy was scheduled for late Wednesday morning, police said.
An earlier version of this story listed Getzschman's last name as Getzchman.
