FAIRBANKS - Fairbanks police say a 28-year-old motorcyclist has died after crashing during an apparent high-speed race.

Police identified the victim as Nathan Gray, a member of the Alaska Air National Guard.

Police Sgt. Gary Yamamoto says Gray looked to have been racing a driver of a car westbound on the Johansen Expressway late Friday night when his motorcycle left the road.

Yamamoto says it appears Gray was driving at more than 100 miles per hour when the motorcycle left the road at a small curve and demolished about 150 feet of fencing.

Yamamoto declined to identify the other driver but says information about the accident has been sent to state attorneys for possible charges.
