A Monongahela man died in a motorcycle accident Tuesday in Phoenix, less than two weeks after he moved out west.

Jess Wade Bartman, 27, was riding a 2011 Kawasaki motorcycle around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday when it collided with a Ford van that had failed to yield to traffic, according to Phoenix-based KNXV-TV/Channel 15 ABC.

Bartman, who was wearing a helmet, survived the accident but died not long after at an area hospital.

Bartman was a Ringgold graduate and son of Tim and Cindy Bartman in Monongahela, according to Marshall Marra, who is handling the funeral arrangements.
