WASHINGTON — An Indiana man is dead after the motorcycle he was riding was struck by a car near the National Mall in Washington.

D.C. police say the collision occurred late Friday night at the intersection of 23rd Street and Constitution Avenue, NW.

Police say 66-year-old George Hillis of North Lake Village, Ind., was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police are still investigating the collision, which occurred when a Chrysler Sebring struck Hillis’s Harley-Davidson as he turned from 23rd Street onto westbound Constitution Avenue.

Bikers from across the country are in the District this weekend for the annual Rolling Thunder tribute event to war veterans.
