KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A Missouri man is charged with second-degree murder for a collision that killed a motorcyclist in eastern Kansas.

The crash occurred late Sunday on Interstate 635 in Kansas City, Kansas. Authorities said 61-year-old Melody Hinshaw, of Kansas City, Missouri, was thrown from her motorcycle when it was hit from behind by a car.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reported that Hinshaw was wearing a helmet and goggles.

The Wyandotte County district attorney on Tuesday charged 36-year-old Shaun Moton with second-degree murder, leaving the scene of an injury accident and misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol.

Moton, also of Kansas City, Missouri, was jailed in lieu of $500,000 bond. He did not have a lawyer.
