JASPER COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – State police say a motorcyclist is dead after a crash on Interstate 65.
Fifty-year-old Bahnan Dawood of Illinois was riding north on the interstate Monday evening when his back tire blew out.
This happened just after 11 about three miles north of the Fair Oaks exit.

He was hit by a semi and then multiple times by other vehicles, sustaining injuries which he could not survive.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
None of the vehicles that hit Dawood stopped.
North bound lanes on I-65 near the crash were diverted for about 4 hours as the scene was under investigation.
