TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Police are investigating a fatal motorcycle crash on U.S. Highway 75 south of Apache.

The victim has been identified as 29-year-old Orlando Crosslen.

Police say a truck driver noticed debris in the northbound lanes at about dawn, then saw the motorcycle lying next to the highway. Police say the driver stopped to check out the scene and found the Crosslen's body lying against a nearby fence.

Tulsa Police don't know exactly when the crash occurred or what caused it, but do say Crosslen was traveling at more than 100 mph at the time of the crash.

Police think the crash happened some time between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m.  They believe Crosslen didn't realize there is a sharp curve in the northbound lanes there and lost control because he was going so fast.

Northbound Highway 75 was reduced to one lane while police investigated the crash scene.
