A motorcyclist was killed in a crash on I-35 on Friday afternoon that shut down the southbound lanes for several hours.

The incident just before 3 p.m. on I-35 at Wyoming happened as traffic began to slow in the left lane for construction ahead, the State Patrol says.

A Harley Davidson side-swiped a Ford Fusion, with the motorcyclist dying from his injuries.

He's since been identified as 56-year-old Bruce Pariseau, of North Branch.

The State Patrol says he wasn't wearing a helmet. No alcohol was involved in the crash.
