LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. -- Although the incident remains under investigation, a spokesman with the Lake Havasu Police Department confirmed Tuesday that Randy J. Wynia, 56, of Slayton, was killed during a collision between his motorcycle and an on-duty fully marked patrol vehicle at approximately 7 p.m. Monday in Arizona.

Authorities believe Wynia suffered a medical emergency, which caused him to lose control of his motorcycle.

Wynia was traveling southbound on Arizona State Route 95 in Lake Havasu City when his motorcycle crossed into the northbound lane and struck the squad car.

According to a news release, the officer driving the squad car took evasive action to avoid being hit head-on by the motorcycle, causing the front and left of the motorcycle to collide with the left side of the squad car.

Wynia, who was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision, was ejected off the motorcycle when it went down.

The officer was not injured, and was able to make a U-turn in an effort to aid Wynia.

Wynia was transported to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Neither speed nor alcohol is considered a contributing factor in the crash, the department stated.
