The Oklahoma Highway Patrol and Tulsa Police investigated a deadly motorcycle crash around 4 p.m. Sunday on Highway 75 near I-44.

News On 6 was on the scene just minutes after the fatal crash in the southbound lanes of Highway 75.

Troopers say one of the motorcycle's tires was blown. The OHP believes that caused the rider to lose control and crash. He died at the scene, authorities said.

Troopers say no other vehicle was involved in the crash, which caused a lengthy backup on Highway 75.

Tulsa Police later identified the motorcyclist as Brady Barker, 53.
