An Ohio man died at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital one day after crashing his motorcycle on Interstate 75, authorities said.

Paul E. Bender III, 41, of Galloway, Ohio, died at 9:14 p.m. Thursday in the hospital's neurosurgical intensive care unit, according to the Fayette County coroner. He died of traumatic brain injury.
