A motorcycle/vehicle crash on APD40 Thursday night claimed the life of the rider.

Cleveland police say that the 2009 Kawasaki motorcycle, ridden by Charles Braddam, 46, of Cleveland, went off the road, into the median and slid into oncoming traffic.

That's where Braddam was struck by a 2002 Ford Explorer, driven by Tim Massengill, 54, also of Cleveland.

Braddam did not survive the crash. There were no injuries for the occupants of the explorer.

Speed and alcohol for the driver of the motorcycle appear to be factors in this crash, according to Cleveland police. 

The investigation is ongoing.
