SELLERSBURG —  A motorcyclist was killed late Thursday night in Clark County.

Charles R. Cahall Jr., 42, of Mt. Zion Road in Henryville, was travelling northbound on Interstate 65 at a high rate of speed swerving in and out of traffic when his Harley Davidson collided with a semi-tractor and trailer near the 11.5 mile marker just before midnight, witnesses told Indiana State Police troopers.

According to a news release from ISP, witnesses said the semi-tractor and trailer involved in the crash continued travelling north. Police do not know if the truck driver knew the crash had occurred.
