A Crown Point motorcyclist died on Saturday after losing control of his bike on an I-80/94 on-ramp in Lake County, the Indiana State Police said.

The victim was identified as Michael Anco, 29.

According to police, at 5:50 p.m. Anco was on the northbound Kennedy to the eastbound I-80/94 on-ramp when he failed to negotiate the curve, crossed the gore area at the bottom of the ramp--the marked area separating the ramp from the interstate mainline--went through the right lane, and struck a semiís box trailer.

Anco was ejected from his 1995 Honda CBR900 and landed in the right lane, where he was run over by the box trailerís rear tires, police said.

The motorcycle, after striking the trailer, went off to the right across two acceleration lanes and came to a final rest on the outer shoulder.

The semi, a 2015 Freightliner hauling refrigerated goods and owned by Global Transportation of Denver, Colo., was driven by Umbetov Arman, 36 of Panama City Beach, Fla., police said.

Anco--who was wearing a helmet and protective clothing--was pronounced dead at the scene of massive blunt force trauma, police said. Arman was not injured.

The north bound Kennedy to the eastbound I-80/94 on-ramp and the two right lanes were closed until approximately 9:30 p.m.
