A 74-year-old man is dead after a crash Sunday afternoon on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Rangers and local rescue crews responded at about 4 p.m. to the reported crash near milepost 348.5, just north of the Laurel Knob Tunnel, after a motorcyclist heading north lost control in a curve and went off the road, according to the National Park Service.
They arrived and performed CPR on George Wayne Harkins, of Senoia, Georgia; however, he died at the scene as a result of injuries sustained during the crash.
He was riding with other motorcyclists at the time of the crash, according to NPS.
