A motorcyclist was killed Friday in a crash in Billings.

The wreck, which is under investigation by the Billings Police Department, shut down a portion of Mullowney Lane near the Interstate 90 interchange. It’s at least the fourth fatal motorcycle crash in the city so far this year.

First responders were called to the intersection of Mullowney Lane and Midland Road early Friday morning, according to a statement posted to social media by BPD. A motorcyclist collided with a vehicle beneath the I-90 overpass in the northbound lane of Mullowney. As of 11 a.m., investigators were still diverting traffic away from Mullowney Lane.

In June, a 30-year-old Billings man died after the motorcycle he was on collided with a vehicle at Shiloh Road and Olympic Boulevard. While that crash also remains under investigation, speed is suspected to be a factor, according to a statement from BPD.
