SEDGWICK COUNTY—Law enforcement authorities are investigating a crash that fatally injured a 40-year-old motorcyclist near Kellogg and Woodlawn in Wichita.

Just before 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Wichita Accident Follow Up detectives along with the Critical Accident Team were completing work on another fatal collision on Kellogg and were allowing traffic to proceed east, according to Officer Trevor Macy.

A 40-year-old man on a motorcycle was eastbound in the lane for the off ramp to Woodlawn when Kellogg was reopened.

The man changed lanes into the outside lane of rastbound Kellogg, where he collided with a black Chevy pickup truck driven by a 42-year-old woman. The motorcycle struck the passenger side front of the truck. The man was ejected from the motorcycle, went underneath the truck and was then run over.

EMS transported  the man to area hospital with critical injuries where he was later pronounced deceased.

Police did not release the man's name.
