Cochise County Sheriffs are investigating a fatal motorcycle accident that happened just before 1 p.m. Wednesday on near milepost 9 on Charleston Road.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene and was taken to the Pima County Medical Examiners Office for an autopsy.

Officials say they believe the man was a Sierra Vista resident traveling towards Sierra Vista from Tombstone when he may have suffered from a medical issue causing the accident.

The man was driving a Yamaha Cruiser.

The Tombstone Marshal's Office closed Charleston Rd. at 1:15 p.m. so public safety personal could respond to the scene.

Charleston Rd. was reopened at 3:15 p.m.
