Sullivan. . .was riding his 2006 Kawasaki Ninja west on Highway 78 west of Highway 86 about noon Sunday at more than 100 miles per hour [when] a sleeping bag, attached to the rear fender, became loose and wedged between the frame and the rear tire, stopping the bike.. . Sullivan lost control and was ejected onto the pavement.
Sullivan sustained what were reportedly “major injuries” in the accident.
