A Connersville, IN man was killed after attempting to pass a vehicle in a no-passing zone, according to Indiana State Police.
Authorities say 38-year-old Benjamin Hanson was riding a Harley Davidson motorcycle northbound on State Route 1, just north of Brookville.
According to investigators, Hanson attempted to a pass a vehicle on a double yellow line. 50-year-old Scott Sams of Laurel was driving a Ford van in the opposite direction.
Hanson swerved back into the northbound lane and lost control. The van struck the motorcycle and then swerved into the northbound lane forcing a third vehicle, a Ford pickup truck driven by 54-year-old Susan Albright, into the guardrail.
Han was pronounced dead at the scene. Sams and Albright were not injured in the accident.
