STEUBEN COUNTY, Ind. (WOWO): A 48-year-old man is dead after crashing his motorcycle in Clear Lake Township Sunday evening.

Steuben County deputies and first responders were called to the intersection of County Road 700 North and County Road 925 East at 6:38pm to find Kenneth Byrd partly under a motorcycle.
