A man was killed when a semi turned into his path on County Road 59 in DeKalb County.

According to the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department, emergency responders were called to the 4400 block of County Road 59 around 2:15 p.m. Tuesday afternoon. Investigative reports indicate that Michael Hall, age 45 of Fort Wayne, was on a motorcycle heading south when a semi driven by Nathaniel Wells, age 28 of Paulding (Ohio), turned in front of him.

Wells told investigators he saw the motorcycle, but thought he was farther away and could turn in time.

Hall hit the semi and was thrown from his motorcycle. The motorcycle then burst into flames. He was taken by Samaritan to Parkview Fort Wayne where he died.

Investigators said Hall was not wearing a helmet.

Assisting the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department at the scene was the Butler Police Department, Indiana State Police, Butler Fire Department, DeKalb County EMS, and Parkview Samaritan.

The crash remains under investigation.
