(WMC-TV) - A motorcycle crash off I-55 leaves one dead Sunday.

Police state "the crash happened just after 2:30 p.m. when the motorcycle came to rest on its right side at the start of the bridge".

The victim has not yet been identified; but, members of the biking community are trying to identify the biker.

"[We're] looking for vests, bike markings, or some sort of association with a local club ... or community," declared biker Blade with the Wyld Boyz club.

Blade continued, "Loving [the] community and what we do is a dangerous hobby. So, we do check on each other and we try to keep our hands close to each and everything."

According to other bike club members, the motorcycle has Mississippi plates and their clubs have members from all over the Mid-South.

Right now, bike clubs are requesting for anyone in a club to check in with their club president.
