Investigators believe the driver of the SUV attempted to make a lane change to the left and noticed the motorcycle occupying that lane. At that point, they believe the driver over-corrected by moving sharply to the right and then back to the left, which caused the SUV to collide with the motorcycle.
Bartolic, the operator of the motorcycle, was ejected and later pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Police said the SUV overturned, but the driver was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
