Just before 9 p.m. on Saturday, Sioux City Police and Sioux City Fire Rescue were called to a single-vehicle accident on Business Highway 75 North.
The accident occurred in the northbound lanes just south of Frelon Drive.
Officials say a 2005 Harley Davidson motorcycle, driven by Hassebroek, was northbound on Business Highway 75.
Officials say it appears the rider of the motorcycle drifted off the road, and lost control.
Officials say Hassebroek was unable to regain control, and both him, and the motorcycle went to the ground.
The motorcycle struck a guardrail and the driver was thrown a short distance.
Officials say Hassebroek was transported to Mercy Medical Center and died from injuries sustained in the crash.
