Last evening a Salt Lake man was ejected from his motorcycle when he lost control in Lambs Canyon.

The 63-year-old Salt Lake resident was traveling west on I-80 on a motorcycle pulling a trailer. Witnesses say the motorcycle was traveling at a high rate of speed and weaving in and out of traffic before losing control.

The motorcycle went left and right several times before ejecting the rider off to the left side ditch. The motorcycle continued for several hundred feet more before stopping in the road.

Giles told KPCW that the fire is designated as 100 percent contained, but it's still burning in some spots.
