HALFWAY -- A Mercersburg, Pa., man died Wednesday when his motorcycle slid across Interstate 81 and struck a guardrail, according to Maryland State Police.

Stephen P. Kulina, 48, of Mercersburg, was pronounced dead at the scene, troopers said in a press release. Kulina was the only person involved in the accident, police said.

An investigation revealed Kulina was riding on the ramp from Halfway Boulevard to go northbound on Interstate 81 about 4:15 p.m. when he lost control of a 2004 Harley-Davidson and it overturned, troopers said. Kulina slid across both lanes before striking a guardrail, troopers said.

One lane of Interstate 81 was closed until about 5:55 p.m., troopers said. Speed and operator error contributed to the accident, troopers said.
