A North Dakota motorcyclist died in a crash near the same spot where he was caught going 140 mph last year.

Police identified him Monday as 24-year old Tanner Beighley. Police say his motorcycle collided with a car coming off an Interstate 94 exit ramp Sunday. Police say the car had the green light.

The Star Tribune reports that on Feb. 26, 2016, Beighley was driving a motorcycle west on I-94 near the same exit when authorities were alerted to a motorcycle going much faster than the 75 mph speed limit. The Highway Patrol says a trooper soon registered him on radar at 140 mph.

A Fargo police statement did not say how fast Beighley was driving when he crashed, and that no further information would be released for now.
