A motorcyclist died as a result of a vehicle crash on the Dunbeholden main road in St Catherine on Thursday morning.

The deceased has been identified as Travis McLaughlin.

Reports are that about 2:00 a.m., the driver of a van heading towards Portmore from Spanish Town on the Dunbeholden main road came in contact with a group of motorcyclists who were travelling in the opposite direction.

Reports are that McLaughlin, from the group of riders, swerved into the path of the van, resulting in a collision.

McLaughlin, who was reportedly not wearing a helmet, ended up being flung from his bike, and landed on the roadway.

He died on the spot.

It is reported that his motorbike had no registration plate, and the cyclists who were riding with him, fled the crash scene.
