Post Falls, ID - On 06-22-19, at around 4:00p.m. the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office and Kootenai County Fire and Rescue responded to the 3600 block of S. Greensferry Road for a report of an injury motorcycle accident.
Deputies arrived on scene and located a male subject who was later identified as Kevin D. Hackworth, a 44 year old male from Spokane, off the roadway and down an embankment. Preliminary investigation shows the rider was going too fast and lost control of his motorcycle, crashed and went over an embankment. Lifesaving efforts were attempted by Deputies and medical personnel, however the rider was pronounced deceased at the scene.
At this time it appears that speed was a possible cause of the accident. The rider was wearing a helmet and alcohol does not appear to be factor in the accident.
The Kootenai County Traffic Team was called out and has taken over the investigation. More information about this incident will be released as it becomes available.
