Motorcycle Rider Killed in Crash

FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ind. (WKRC) -- A motorcycle rider is dead, after Indiana State Police say he tried to pass a vehicle Sunday evening in a no-passing zone.

Troopers say 38-year-old Benjamin Hanson was driving northbound on State Route 1 about a mile north of Brookville, when he tried to pass. Hanson tried to swerve back in his lane, after spotting a van going southbound, but he lost control of the motorcycle.

The van hit Hanson and his motorcycle, and swerved into a pickup truck, forcing the truck into a guardrail.

Hanson was pronounced dead at the scene. The drivers of the van and the pickup weren't hurt.
