DES MOINES, Iowa -- Police have identified the motorcyclist killed in a crash Tuesday night in Des Moines.
Emergency crews were called to East 27th Street at Hubbell Avenue at about 9 p.m.
Police said the motorcyclist, Rodney Wayne McCloney, 46, of Des Moines, was heading eastbound on Hubbell when he likely realized he was going too fast to make the curve. McCloney and his bike slid across the center line, bounced off of a van and then into a car.
The speed limit in the area is 35 miles per hour and police said McCloney was likely speeding.
“There's some skid marks leading up to a point where the motorcycle was probably put down to the ground and then the slide continued,” said Des Moines Police Sergeant Jason Halifax.
This is Iowa's third motorcycle fatality for 2015.
