STAMFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A Norwalk man was killed in a motorcycle crash that shut down parts of Interstate 95 North in Stamford early Monday morning.

The crash took place at about 2:30 a.m. north of exit 8 on I-95 North, state police said.

According to investigators, a Suzuki motorcycle, operated by 23-year-old Jose Coreas Ortiz, was following closely behind a box truck with an Indiana registration plate, traveling north on I-95 in the center lane.

State police said the motorcycle struck the rear of the box truck, which caused Coreas Ortiz to fall from his motorcycle and into the center lane, where he was struck by a tractor-trailer.

Coreas Ortiz was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was injured in the crash.

I-95 North was shut down for about five hours.

Anyone with information or relevant dash cam footage is asked to call Trooper Quispialaya at (203) 696-2500.
