BOSTON (AP) — State police are investigating a fatal motorcycle crash on Storrow Drive in Boston.

A trooper traveling east on the road came across the crash site shortly before 10:30 p.m. Sunday. The motorcycle operator was lying in the roadway near a Harley Davidson motorcycle on its side a short distance past the Longfellow Bridge. The trooper called for medical assistance, but the man had died of his injuries. He was wearing a helmet.

The man in his 40s has been tentatively identified but police are withholding his name pending confirmation by family.

Investigators are attempting to determine the cause and circumstances of the crash, but investigators observed scrape marks on the pavement, the curb, and a Jersey barrier near the end of a tight curve in the roadway.
