OSCEOLA, Ind. — A 43-year-old man was killed when his motorcycle crashed during a race at a northern Indiana drag strip.

The Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department says Todd Hilligoss of Elkhart died Sunday afternoon during a motorcycle competition at the Osceola Dragway.

Police say he was riding in the left lane when he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed into the guard rail on the left side of the drag strip.

Hilligoss was dead by the time emergency personnel arrived.

Osceola Dragway owner Ruth Chizum says the race was part of a regular weekly series. The other races were canceled after the accident.

The drag strip is about halfway between South Bend and Elkhart.
