Corsicana — A Rowlett man was killed Monday in a motorcycle crash on Interstate 45 south of Corsicana.

Jack Burson, 56, was killed when his 2005 Harley Davidson crashed into a center divider of the highway on the northbound side of Interstate 45 near the 220 mile marker. The crash was reported to authorities at 5:15 p.m. Monday.

Sgt. Thomas Moore of the Texas Department of Public Safety said Burson apparently failed to negotiate a curve in the highway, lost control of his motorcycle and struck the center divider. Burson was not wearing a helmet, Moore said. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

Burson was pronounced dead at the scene by Navarro County Justice of the Peace Vicki Gray. DPS Trooper Bill Grauzer investigated the crash.
