Motorcycle crashes at 285 mph

A man who set the world speed record for a motorcycle two years ago died over the weekend in a crash.

Bill Warner wrecked when his motorcycle veered hard to the right in the last lap of a speed trial in Maine.

Warner, who was reportedly going 285 mph before the crash, was launched 40 feet in the air and 100 yards down the track. He was conscious on the way to the hospital, but died about an hour afterward.
