A 58-year-old motorcyclist died after he lost control and struck a mailbox on Ranch Road 12 near Dripping Springs Sunday evening, says the Texas Department of Public Safety.

DPS says Ernest Tamayo, 58, of Dripping Springs, was riding his 2017 Ducati northbound on RM 12 near Deer Creek Circle at an unsafe speed when he came upon a curve. Tamayo entered a side skid, struck a mailbox and a culvert, which ejected him from his motorcycle. 

No one else was injured in the crash.
