LIMESTONE, Maine (AP) - Police in northern Maine are investigating a crash that killed a motorcycle racer who was traveling 285 mph.

Bill Warner, a native of Little Falls, was trying to top 300 mph at a racing event in Limestone Sunday, when he lost control of the motorcycle and zoomed off the runway.

A racing official says the 44-year-old Warner was conscious and talking after the crash, but died a little more than an hour later at a hospital.
