DeLand, FL-FHP says a 37-year-old DeLand man was killed Wednesday night on his motorcycle in a wreck involving a semi-truck.

Troopers say John Varga, Jr, was going west on Old Daytona Road and a tractor-trailer was headed south on Newport Avenue. The driver of the truck told troopers he was stopped at the intersection and was turning left. He says he didn’t see the biker until the last minute and the biker hit the rear of the back end of the tractor trailer. The bike went under the truck and came out the other side.

Varga was dead at the scene and was not wearing a helmet. The driver of the semi is identified as 34-year-old Ervin Woodruff of Irvington, AL.

FHP says the accident, which happened around 9:30pm,  remains under investigation.
