LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One person is dead after a motorcycle crash on I-65 North Thursday night.

It happened around 9:30 near Hospital Curve. Officials say a Jeep tried to merge into the fast lane and rear-ended the motorcycle. The motorcyclist was thrown from the bike and died at the scene.

The driver of the Jeep was also injured, and was taken to University Hospital. 

"The driver of the Jeep had very minor injuries despite the fact that his vehicle did overturn several times," said LMPD spokeswoman Alicia Smiley. 

Police have not yet determined if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
