DC Police are investigating a collision that resulted in the death of a motorcyclist Friday night.

Authorities say that the motorcycle collided with a Chrysler Sebring at around 11 p.m. at the intersection of 23rd Street and Constitution Avenue NW. Authorities identified the motorcycle's operator as 66-year-old George Hillis of North Lake Village, Indiana.

Investigators say that Hillis was traveling north on 23rd Street and was attempting to turn west onto Constitution Avenue when he was struck by the Chrysler Sebring, which was traveling south on 23rd Street. Hillis was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The driver of the car, who has not been identified, was not injured. According to News4's Derrick Ward, Hillis was in town for this weekend's Rolling Thunder run.

The intersection was shut down while the scene was investigated. The intersection was reopened early Saturday morning.

Police say the driver of the car remained on scene. No charges have yet been filed. Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call (202) 727-9099.
