TULAROSA, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say an Alamogordo man has died after he struck an elk while riding his motorcycle.
    
New Mexico State Police Sgt. Emmanuel T. Gutierrez said 45-year-old Brian Miller was killed Friday night during the accident just outside of Tularosa.
    
Gutierrez says the elk ran onto the road and Miller hit the animal and was thrown from his motorcycle.
    
He says Miller was not wearing a helmet.
    
Holloman Air Force Base Col. Andrew Croft told the Alamogordo Daily News that Miller was a civilian contract employee who worked at the commissary on the base.
