Joshua House, 49, of Anderson was killed at the intersection of Ind. 9 and County Road 1100 South on Sept. 6, said Madison County Coroner Dr. Troy Abbott.

Witnesses said House was riding a 2000 Yamaha MC south on Ind. 9 when he tried to pass a pickup truck — also headed south and pulling a smaller vehicle.

House was pronounced dead at the scene.

Neither the pickup’s driver, Matthew Sarten, 25, of Fortville, nor a passenger in the automobile he was pulling was hurt, according to the release.
