A man was killed Saturday as he lost control of his motorcycle on a ramp to Interstate 69.

The accident happened on the southbound I-69 ramp from westbound Interstate 469 around 3 p.m. The man, whom police did not identify, was found on the north edge of the road and his motorcycle was found 400 feet away, in a ravine. 

Police said speed was a factor in the crash, which is the seventh fatal traffic accident in Allen County this year. 

The crash remains under investigation, a statement from the Fort Wayne Police Department said. The name of the victim will be released by the Allen County coroner’s office, the statement said.
