A trip across the top of the Saylorville dam turned deadly for a Des Moines man overnight.
About two o’clock Friday morning the Polk county sheriff’s office says 27-year-old Travius Davis was in the 5300 block of Northwest 78th Street near the top of the dam.
Witnesses say Davis was going north when he lost control of his bike and hit the guardrail.
Officers arrived to find Davis unconscious but breathing.
Mercy One Air Ambulance transported Davis to Mercy hospital where he later died from his injuries.
