Officers determined that a 55-year-old man was driving a Toyota Camry. Consequently, he was going eastbound on Calvine Road. The drive was moving alongside the motorcyclist in another lane as they were both approaching North Sheldon Drive.

Unfortunately, they found the motorcyclist suffering from major injuries. He was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Following the crash, the driver of the Camry remained on the scene and cooperated with the police. The investigation is still going on.
