    A University of New Hampshire student died in a motorcycle crash on Thursday morning.

    Steven Batakis, 21, was killed when he lost control and was thrown from his 1994 Suzuki motorcycle on Route 108 in Durham at 10:45 a.m. Thursday, according to Seacoastonline.com. He was then hit by a Jeep that was headed in the opposite direction. A third vehicle also collided with the motorcycle.

    UNH Dean of Students Ted Kirkpatrick said the university was "deeply saddened" to learn of Batakis's death and extended its "deepest sympathies" to his family and friends.

    Batakis was a junior studying environmental and resource economics in the school's College of Life Sciences and Agriculture.

    The accident remains under investigation.
