A motorcyclist was killed early Friday morning when his motorcycle missed a curve on Interstate 75, Madison County Coroner James Cornelison said.
The motorcyclist was identified as Christopher Freeouf, 44, of Georgetown.
Cornelison said the crash occurred about 1 a.m. Friday on the northbound lane of I-75, just south of the Fayette County line.
Cornelison pronounced Freeouf dead at about 1:30 a.m. The cause of death was blunt-force trauma.

Kentucky State Police said Freeouf was with two other motorcyclists, and Freeouf was wearing his helmet. Speed and alcohol are thought to be factors in the crash.
The right northbound lane was closed for about an hour and a half.
Freeouf worked at the Toyota plant in Georgetown. His family has been notified about his death, officials said.
