The 2002 Honda motorcycle also caught fire sometime after the crash, according to the Utah Highway Patrol. A Division of Wildlife Resources officer was driving east through the canyon when he noticed the fire and called for help.

The officer also tried to render first aid to Allen, but he had not been wearing a helmet and died at the scene, according to the UHP.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
