The second motorcycle driver, Jason T. Steiner, 32, was transported to a nearby hospital for examination and treatment, where he passed away.

Witnesses told police the two motorcycles left a red light at the intersection of Rossville Blvd. and E.28th Street at a high rate of speed, making contact with each other about 100 yards from the intersection.
