WINCHESTER, Ind. — A motorcyclist was killed Saturday in a collision at Randolph County Road 400-N and U.S. 27.

James Simpson, 29, of Frankfort, was riding a 2015 Harley Davidson northbound on U.S. 27 when he drove into the rear of a 2019 Chevy Silverado truck driven by Dan Hill Jr., 59, Winchester.

Simpson — who was not wearing a helmet, according to a new release — was pronounced dead at the scene by the Randolph County coroner. The crash was reported at 4:45 p.m.

Hill’s truck was stopped in the northbound lane of the federal highway as he waited for approaching traffic so he could turn west onto County Road 400-N, Hendrickson said.

Because there were no skid marks at the scene, investigators believe Simpson did not see the truck ahead of him.

An investigation — by the sheriff’s department and the coroner’s office — is ongoing.

Winchester Fire Department medics and White River Township firefighters also responded to the scene.
