The CHP responded at 5:58 p.m. to a report that a motorcyclist's head was submerged in a creek.

Emergency crews pronounced Neely dead at 6:10 p.m.

Neely was apparently speeding west on Westside Road and failed to negotiate a curve.

The motorcycle left the southern edge of the road and into the creek and Neely was ejected and plunged facedown into the water, according to the CHP.
