BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

One man is dead after being thrown from his motorcycle near the Biloxi-Ocean Springs Bridge on Saturday night. Harrison County Deputy Coroner Brian Switzer tells us the accident happened around midnight on Highway 90.

Switzer said 42-year-old Jason Owens was traveling westbound when he swerved, hit a curb then struck a tree. Officials said Owens died from blunt force trauma to the head.

Authorities said Owens was wearing a helmet, and they do not believe alcohol was a factor but a routine toxicology test will be performed. Switzer said they expect those results sometime in the next few days.
