WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Newman University officials say a 21-year-old wrestler from the school died when his motorcycle crashed into a building.

The school says Reece Wright-Conklin was on his way to work at the PetSmart in west Wichita Thursday morning when the accident occurred.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1LXS2BC ) Wright-Conklin crashed his Honda 600 sport bike into the side of the building. He was discovered by a co-worker arriving for work and flown to a Wichita hospital, where he died.

Wichita police Lt. Joe Schroeder says police aren’t sure exactly when the crash occurred.

A prayer service will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday in St. John’s Chapel, inside Sacred Heart Hall on the Newman campus.



Funeral arrangements are pending.
