LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A Connersville, Ind. man was killed in an accident in Franklin County Sunday night.

Police said Benjamin Hanson, 38, was passing another car in a no-passing zone on State Route 1 near Brookville around 7:45 Sunday night. He reportedly lost control of the motorcycle he was driving, causing a van driving the opposite direction to hit him.

The van struck the motorcycle and then swerved into the northbound lane, forcing a third vehicle into the guardrail.

Hanson was pronounced dead at the scene.  No one else was injured.
