An Atascadero man was killed after he lost control of his motorcycle Thursday afternoon in the North County, according to CHP officials.

Ronald Lee Morehead, 48, was traveling east on Parkhill Road near Stagecoach Canyon Road, off Highway 58, when he lost control of the 2004 motorcycle he was riding. He then drove the motorcycle into a field and rolled several times.

CHP officials said the motorcycle hit a barbed-wire fence and the fence posts caused the bike to flip over.
