motorcyclist died on Monday when he lost control of his bike following a
tire blowout on I-65, the Indiana State Police said.
police, at 11:13 p.m. Bahnan Dawood, 50 of Des Plaines, was northbound on
I-65 when, approximately three miles north of the Fair Oaks exit, the back
tire on his 2012 Honda blew out, causing him to lose control of his bike.
The motorcycle came
to rest on the outside shoulder but Dawood himself landed in the lanes of
traffic, where he was first hit by a semi, then run over multiple times by
other vehicles. “Dawood had been wearing a helmet but sustained injuries he
could not survive” and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
traffic was diverted off I-65 at exit 220 for approximately four hours,
