NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Police in New Orleans spent the early morning hours investigating a motorcycle accident that killed one man and put another in the hospital.

Police said the accident happened just before midnight Wednesday as a group of motorcycle riders entered a highway entrance ramp at New Orleans' North Claiborne Avenue. One driver lost control and his motorcycle struck another. One of the cyclists was thrown from his vehicle and went over a concrete rail on the entrance ramp. He died at the scene.

The other motorcycle driver was taken to a hospital in stable condition. Victims' identities were being withheld Thursday morning.

The first victim's motorcycle continued on to Interstate 10 after the initial collision. It was struck by a vehicle on the interstate. Nobody was injured.
