Richland County Coroner Maggie Gist says 59-year-old Marc Morasko of Glendive died in a motorcycle crash south of Sidney on Saturday afternoon. The patrol says Morasko was southbound on Montana Highway 16 and attempted to pass a truck as the truck was making a left-hand turn. The motorcycle collided with the side of the truck.
