GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

After crashing into an SUV Saturday afternoon, Harrison County officials have confirmed that 46-year-old Curtis Wicker of Gulfport has died.

The Gulfport Police Department was called to the scene on Duckworth Road just before 1 p.m.

Police say a Chevrolet Tahoe was headed eastbound when it slowed down to make a turn into a private driveway. At that time, Wicker, who was driving a motorcycle behind several other vehicles, attempted to pass traffic when he struck the front-end of the Tahoe.

Wicker was taken to the hospital, where he later died from head and chest injuries.

The driver of the Tahoe was not hurt.
