MONROE, Conn. -- A man was killed when his motorcycle crashed on Main Street Monday evening, according to Fox 61 News.

Police responded shortly past 7 p.m. to the scene of a crash between a 2006 Harley Davidson and a 2013 Land Rover, Fox 61 News reported.

Forrest Ryan, 24, of Monroe, was the driver of the motorcycle, said Fox 61 News. He was driving it northbound on Main Street then crossed over to the side heading south, striking the Land Rover, said Fox 61 News.
