Gribler said the barrels were removed during the night, and 48-year-old Gene Jacobs of Paw Paw didn’t see the tree at the crest of a hill about 6:15 a.m. Tuesday.

The sheriff said Jacobs was thrown from his motorcycle and pronounced dead at a hospital.

Gribler said Jacobs wore a helmet, and speed wasn’t a factor.
