LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) – A motorcyclist was killed Saturday night after he ran into a car on I-95 South, flew off of his bike and was hit by a tractor trailer, police say.

Maryland State Police say an unidentified man was riding at an apparent high speed near Route 212 around 7 p.m. when his Suzuki GSX-R 600 motorcycle struck a Volkswagen, causing the motorcyclist to apparently lose control.

The man then became airborne, landed on the highway and was hit by a tractor trailer, according to authorities.

The motorcyclist died at the scene and no one in the two other vehicles was injured.

Several lanes of southbound I-95 in Prince George’s County were closed as police investigated the crash. Lanes have since reopened.
