Motorcyclist dies after crashing into guardrail on I-465 ramp

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - A motorcycle rider was killed in a crash on a highway exit ramp in Indianapolis on Saturday afternoon, WXIN reports.

Police responded to the scene in the area of Interstate 465 and Interstate 69 after the incident was reported at 3:55 p.m.  Investigators learned that the motorcyclist was traveling at high speed when he lost control of the bike and hit a guardrail along the exit ramp from I-465 north to I-69 north.  The man was ejected from the bike, and was then hit by a trailer being pulled by a pickup truck.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene and was identified as 23-year-old J Son Lamont Rinehart.

The exit ramp was shut down for about three hours for the crash investigation, which determined that excessive speed was a likely factor in the accident.  The pickup truck driver remained at the scene.
