A motorcycle accident on Interstate 74 left one person dead, according to Indiana State Police. The accident happened just west of Crawfordsville after 10:00 a.m.
A preliminary investigation of the crash shows the driver, 61, of Ixonia, Wisconsin, was traveling westbound on I-74 when according to witnesses, he leaned to the right of his motorcycle. Officials believe that caused the motorcycle to veer to the right shoulder of the interstate.
He was thrown from his bike and came to rest on the shoulder of the highway. The bike traveled about 100 feet before coming to rest. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Montgomery County Coroner.
The motorcyclist was alone at the time of the crash and no other vehicles were involved in the crash. The highway was shut down for over an hour while officials investigated the scene.
