A Chesterton resident died on Saturday after crashing his motorcycle on U.S. Highway 20, Porter Police said.

The victim was identified as Dean Stainko, 45.

According to police, the crash occurred at 7:50 p.m. on U.S. 20 just west of Tremont Road.

Porter County Coroner Chuck Harris reported that a witness observed Stainko traveling eastbound on U.S. 20 at a high rate of speed just before crossing the center line and entering the oncoming westbound lanes, where he was ejected from his Harley-Davidson.

Stainko--who was not wearing a helmet--was pronounced dead at the scene at 8:43 p.m., Harris said.

The results of a routine toxicology screen are pending, Harris added.

The Porter Police Department is investigating the crash.
