A 37-year-old Des Moines man died overnight in a motorcycle accident.
Ryan Thomas Brooks was riding his motorcycle on a wide street in Des Moines when it smashed into a car that was parking along the street. Police say Brooks was wearing a helmet, but they cite speed as a factor in the crash which happened just before midnight.
