MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – A motorcyclist is dead after a single-vehicle crash in Miami Beach.

The fatal crash occurred Thursday morning on Pine Tree Drive near 46th Street.

A view from Sky 10 showed a body covered by a yellow tarp in a driveway. A trail of blood could also be seen on the ground.

A woman who lives in front of where the crash occurred told Local 10 News reporter Parker Branton that police officers told her the man lost control while coming around the bend. She said it appeared as if he drove up on the elevated curb and wasn't wearing a helmet. 

Police closed a stretch of Pine Tree Drive between 42nd and 47th streets during the investigation.
